It is always helpful to receive a “yes” answer from the Minister.

Amendment 146 is consistent with what we have been trying to achieve throughout our proceedings. If that aim has not been registered by now, I will explain. At every opportunity, we want to emphasise the importance of Parliament not only in scrutinising the processes, but to have the opportunity to receive reports at a later stage and be able to comment on them. However, given that the hon. Gentleman said that there will be public consultation on the rules, at this moment in the evening it would probably be wise of me to take his word. If we consider at a later date that it is not a reasonable way in which to proceed, no doubt we will come back to it. However, for the purposes of this debate, I am happy not to press the amendments.
