Again, it was simply designed to be a probing amendment. Undoubtedly it is technically deficient, because in opposition we do not have the resources of the Treasury. It is intended to obtain an indication from the Minister of what level of notice would be given, and of how that notice and changes under clause 25 would be considered. I wanted him to state on the record that the changes will be subject to a proper process that is understood by those outside the House as well as by the massed ranks of the Treasury. On that basis, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.
