Once again, I congratulate the hon. Member for Cardiff, North on her excellent piloting of the Bill through Committee and the Minster on the thorough way she has answered the queries and questions raised today. I will make one final point. The Minister is aware, because I have talked to her privately, of my nervousness about the anticipated cost of the Bill for local authorities, which is detailed in the impact assessment with a total of £88,000 for all local authorities in England and Wales. There needs careful monitoring to ensure that that assessed cost is accurate. I hope that the officials in the Department will look closely at that, and if it is much greater that anticipated it needs to be brought back before some part of Parliament to ensure that it can be discussed properly.
