I have no difficulty with that explanation and will ask to withdraw the amendment.

That somebody has clearly seen the necessity of making the provision highlights the fact that although notification in itself may not be viewed as a punishment it is nevertheless an onerous requirement that has to be dealt with fairly. If it were not for that, there would have been no requirement to put in clause 42 at all. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.
