Does the hon. Gentleman agree, as I hope the Minister will, that the scheme needs to be flexible and permissive rather than prescriptive? Having heard the debate, does he agree that amendments Nos. 15 and 80 would not do that job? However, I hope that he will be satisfied like me with a ministerial commitment to come back with another draft following his consultations. We want the scheme to be flexible and permissive, to give maximum flexibility and to reduce burdens on businesses.
