I am not going to say very much about amendment 205. While I am very keen to ensure that there is certainty in the tax regime, particularly for a set of provisions that will last only two years, given that the Minister is open to some of the debates about potential changes and there may be new evidence that arises that persuades him to adjust one or more provisions in this clause, passing amendment 205 at this point may not helpful to the interests of getting a better deal for taxpayers. Therefore, if it is feasible, I do not wish to move the amendment.
