I beg to move amendment No. 370, in page 246, line 39, leave out '1st August 2004' and insert '1st October 2004'.

As I understand it, the Government have already accepted the point raised by the amendment. I have not taken in precisely how they will carry it out—whether they will amend clause 302 themselves or whether they will do it in the regulations. I think that the Government have accepted that the timetable was effectively too tight to be realistic, and I look forward to the Minister's confirmation of how the new timetable will be put into effect.
