Before I call the Minister, as the clause before us is central to the Bill, if hon. Members want to debate it I suggest that they do so now. I will accept a more wide-ranging debate, rather than wait for a clause stand part debate at the end. That is a warning shot for anybody who has anything else to say, before I call the Minister.
