The Minister is being generous with her time. I was going to touch on that topic in the next debate. As she has brought it up, I should say that she will be aware that, although the trial has been implemented, it is not universal. There are still significant problems in some areas. Indeed, my right hon. Friend the Member for Warley (Mr Spellar) and my hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton North East (Emma Reynolds) raised the issue with me last night and hoped I would be able to press the Minister on it. Does the Minister think that any change could create another opportunity to get more universal coverage for the issue of Sikh headgear being treated with greater sensitivity, or could it place greater barriers?
