All the points have been well covered. As I have said, the main point is to have consistency and to deal with different types of debt equally and fairly. To exclude judgment debt would be to give status to a particular type of debt, which would not be consistent with the orderly management of the debts of the country in question. It is very important, therefore, that clause 5 remain part of the Bill.
