The hon. Gentleman makes a lot of important points, which I will address later.

I said earlier that I was minded to ask the Committee to vote on amendment No. 266. However, the Minister has clearly expressed a genuine willingness to move towards an acceptable definition—and although it is not there yet, and the Government might have introduced a level of complexity that could work against the interests of the clause, having heard her general approach I will not ask for a vote.
