I have an amendment in this group and I, too, am inclined to support the hon. Lady in withdrawing the amendment because we will come to transition arrangements in due course. However, we should not underestimate the danger of the difference between what is called “urgent”, which may carry all sorts of definitions, and what would normally have been carried out had the commission not been part of the new registration process, given the work load that that entails. There are still many issues to be debated to gain our confidence.
