We support the clause. I am glad that the hon. Gentleman also supports it and that he welcomes the protocol. That is an innovation we brought in as  part of strengthening the role of the Law Commission. We are very interested in his views and would be happy to discuss them further, but I hope he recognises that this is a significant step forward. The effective working of the protocol, which we think is already making a difference to the relationship between the commission and the Government, will ensure that more of the commission’s reports are put into statute.
