I do not intend to discuss the budgetary requirements of the commission now. There is a budget and the commission does its work. The provision gives extra rights to the commission and I believe the hon. Lady welcomes that. I assure her that  the Committee stage of any Bill usually reveals an “and” or a “but” or an “if” or a “maybe” that is in the wrong place or that an additional “and” may be beneficial. I am happy to consider whether this is one of those instances.
