The changes that we are making will ensure that ASPs will be used as intended. Our projections on revenue to the Exchequer were based on that assumption. All we are doing is changing the rules to ensure that they will happen and there is no impact on revenue.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 69 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
