It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gale, and it is an honour to be mistaken for my hon. Friend the Member for Walthamstow. If only I had her presence and reputation. Does my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol East agree that it is highly important that we get the definitions right? When we look back at what happened now for evidence that green taxes changed behaviour, we will need to know exactly what we were discussing at the time. We need to ensure now that the policy is right, because we will want to prove that the changes that the Government made actually changed behaviour. We need to have the correct definitions from the start.
