This was put down as a probing amendment, just something to get down on the record as to the Minister’s intentions. I listened carefully to what he said and I am reassured that he has made the commitment to maintain the value of both figures specified on the face of the Bill in relation to earnings. That is a useful reassurance that can be reviewed in years to come by Members of this House, should anything else be done by a Government at any future time. So, having heard the Minister’s comments, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.
