My hon. Friend makes a good point. I would at all times say, however, that the armed services are a different case entirely. They do not have a trade union to represent them; the British Legion is effectively their trade union. She makes a valid point about a charter for lawyers—they are not people who I have great sympathy for—so I will be interested to hear what the Minister has to say.
