I can begin the debate on this clause as I have a few seconds. It is an important provision that will require careful consideration, given the impact that it may have on some very young children and the overall impact on and interrelationship with child protection issues. It extends directions to leave an area from people aged 16 or over to those aged 10 or over. I look forward to continuing the debate.

The Chairman adjourned the Committee without Question put (Standing Order No. 88).

Adjourned till this day at One o’clock.
