I am grateful to the Minister for his words. I was not trying to engage in any guessing game. My purpose was to raise a reasonable question for further reflection. The Minister has approached the matter in a reasonable way. I invite him to go away and reflect on it further. I am particularly thinking of the position of the claimant and the rights that they may have when they have suffered from negligence. On the basis that the Minister has said that he will reflect on this, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.
