Before the Minister responds, if he intends to do so, I can help the hon. Gentleman. Normally, when amendments are debated in a group, it is important that whoever moves the amendment indicates to the Chair or to the Clerks if they wish to press the amendments to a Division. Otherwise, the group is not specifically put at a later point in the proceedings. With that in mind, if the hon. Gentleman wanted to press to a Division, it would have to be on clause stand part, rather than on an amendment which the Committee has already considered. To avoid that happening with any future amendments that come up in future clauses, the hon. Gentleman or other hon. Member should indicate that they wish to press to a Division. I am sure that we could accommodate them.
