I concur with everything that has been said, and in addition should like to thank my hon. Friend the Member for Oxford, West and Abingdon. It has been a good Committee in many ways. The Bill is largely a good Bill; it contains some things that we wish to improve further and some things that the Government have proposed on which we can build and on which there are grounds for consensus. There are a few areas of the Bill, however, on which we still think that the Government are absolutely bonkers, but we can deal with that later in its consideration.

I thank you, Dame Marion, and your co-Chairman for your chairmanship.

Question put and agreed to.

Bill, as amended, to be reported.

Committee rose at five minutes to Seven o'clock.
