On amendment No. 88, it would not be in order to do more than note that it was not selected because it was outside the scope of the clause. However, I hope that the Committee accepts that it would be sensible to flag up our thinking the clause. I believe that we will have the opportunity to debate the matter later, but I want to signpost that warning notices would also be triggered by recommendations arising from complaints. At the moment, we have not seen that, and I hope that we can return to that issue later in the Bill. We thought it relevant to this clause, but we were unable to frame a suitable amendment to force debate, so we will leave it to another time. I hope that that is a useful signpost for the Minister.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 25 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
