For very good constituency reasons, some of us were not present at the debate on Second Reading. It would help the Committee  if we had an understanding—or if my hon. Friend gave us an understanding—of what the casus belli are today. What are the differences, if any, between my hon. Friend and the supporters of the Bill? What are the outstanding issues that he thinks we need to press? Otherwise, it is a bit of a secret garden, consisting of Treasury nerds, that some of us might like to feel we could take part in.
