Again, I will try to be as brief as possible. In general, we agree with most of the changes made in respect of prohibition orders but, as I said in the context of earlier amendments, we are keen to ensure that accountability and transparency are in place for those changes. We have heard about the importance of information being available to people and ensuring that information about those who are prohibited— if not quite named and shamed; I do not like that terminology—is at least made available to the public. On the basis of the assurances that I have received from the Minister, I do not intend to oppose the clause.
