I do not want to labour the point as it has already been made, but I have just one more request to make of the Minister. Will he please think about this matter and consult with whomever he considers appropriate? Will he also undertake to give either the Committee or the House on Report some indication of what arrangements he has in mind and how they will operate in practice? I refer to the example given earlier. Some arrangements that might naturally come to mind would be illegal and would involve discrimination contrary to legislation. I do not expect the Minister to answer that point in detail now, but perhaps he will come back on Report and say what arrangements he has in mind.
