I shall take the Minister’s earlier intervention as an expression of his firm intention to reconsider the matter before Report. I think that he is very wise to do that. If left uncorrected, Members will continue to feel strongly about it on Report, and I am absolutely certain that those in another place will amend it to provide for the Lord Chief Justice to have this role, if it is not commended. On that basis only, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.
