The hon. Gentleman makes a helpful point, but the current formulation has withstood the test of time. We do not agree with everything that the previous Government did, but inserting the words “a Governor” is something that we can all support. I hope that my clarification on the use of the indefinite article will be the last grammatical discussion that we have in our 16 sittings and that the hon. Member for Nottingham East will see fit to withdraw amendment 2.
