I welcome all hon. Members who have arrived so far to this sitting of the Committee. It is at the moment a lovely day; I hope that it remains just like that. Before we begin, it might be for the benefit of hon. Members if I clarify the arrangements for tabling amendments in the forthcoming brief recess. To be selectable for the sitting on Tuesday 24 February, amendments must be tabled by 4.30 pm on Thursday 19 February. Thereafter, normal deadlines will apply.

On a point of order, Sir Nicholas. I have been asked by the president of the Association of Chief Police Officers, Sir Ken Jones, to bring to the attention of all Committee members a letter that he has sent, which deals with some of the points raised in respect of ACPO. No doubt Committee members will have seen that and will read it, but he asked me to point that out.

The Minister said what he needed to say before I had had time to consider whether it was a point of order or not. In fact, it was not; it was a point of information, but I am sure that the Chair and members of the Committee are grateful to him. In case I forget to say this at the end of the sitting, I shall say now that I hope that all hon. Members have a restful and enjoyable recess with their families.
