Briefly, it is worth the Minister taking note that if he is looking for an example of a clause that is shot through with the word “prescribed”, this is the one. Above all, this is where those of us who are desperately trying to understand and scrutinise the Bill find that its drafting means that we need to have almost all the documents at our disposal to make sense of it. I hope that he will note that. If he can offer any greater clarification when we come back to consider these matters on Report, I am absolutely sure that that would be welcomed by members of the Committee.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 9 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clauses 10 to 12 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
