Before I put the final question, I would like, on behalf of my co-Chairman, David Taylor, and myself, to thank the Minister, the Front-Bench spokesmen and other hon. Members for their kind remarks. This has been a very interesting Bill. At times, the Committee has had its foot on the accelerator; at times, it has gone rather slowly in congested areas. It has also taken a few detours, but we have reached the end of our journey and the end of the Committee stage and I congratulate all those who have taken part on conducting themselves in the best traditions of the House of Commons.

In particular, I thank the Clerks Department and especially our own Clerk, who has guided me so skilfully through various pitfalls; the Hansard writers, who always make us sound much better than we actually are; and of course the police, who have ensured that the proceedings have been conducted without interruption.
