I am, of course, listening very carefully to what the right hon. and learned Gentleman has to say and I understand the point that he is making. However, does he accept that there is a bigger difference in consequence in this? There is a very much bigger difference between the consequence on what can be a relatively minor offence carrying a very small tariff and the consequence of a terrorist offence with a heavy sentence tariff, forfeiture orders and notification procedures consequent on that. That is what gives some of us cause for concern.
