The right hon. Gentleman is an experienced parliamentarian and was a Minister, so he knows how to interpret the commitments and undertakings that I have given to the Committee. Having taken Bills through Parliament, he knows that it is not in the experience of Committees directly to adopt particular amendments that are promoted without their being subject to the House’s due diligence and reflection. He does the Committee and me a disservice in not reflecting some of the commitments that I have made.
