May I say at the outset that I remain convinced that we should have a commitment in the Bill to the application of the Human Rights Act to residents in private care homes. It is clear from what the main Opposition party said that there is not sufficient support in the Committee to guarantee success for my amendment at this stage, but I hope that at later stages of the Bill the Government or others will table an improved amendment that the Government will accept.
