I do not want to pursue the boy scout analogy too far with pegs in the ground and “dib, dib” and all that. I just want to say—and then I shall finish—that I am not trying to pre-empt anything. If anything, I am trying to “post-empt” something. Turner’s figure was 0.3 per cent. All I am trying to say is that the onus is firmly on anyone, including the Minister, who wants a sharp move away from that to 0.5 or 0.6 per cent. or whatever it might be. That is the problem, but I am clearly flogging a dead horse, or a dead tent, so I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.
