Given that the Prime Minister has talked about greater openness and transparency and said that he is going to listen to people and consult more, it is disappointing that the Government have turned this into a Government amendment rather than accepted it as an Opposition amendment. It would have shown us the new spirit that the Prime Minister wants to generate. I am so disappointed that the Treasury team has not taken up the Prime Minister’s advice.
