We also support the clause and acknowledge the tremendous work that volunteers do. It never ceases to amaze me just how willing people are to give of their time, and it is right that they should be reimbursed for any expenses that they incur. On the accommodation aspect of the clause, will the Minister explain the difference between someone finding accommodation and then having to get the charity to pay the bill, and paying the bill themselves and then submitting it to the charity? That could present some logistical difficulties.
