It is a fair question. My understanding is that they were all rejected either because they were created before 22 June or they were in one of the excluded regions. If I am wrong about that, I will make sure that I correct the record. The information I have seen suggests that that was the reason. Who knows? Inspiration may come to me soon if I am wrong. Subject to those points, I hope that I have provided some useful clarification and that the hon. Gentleman will withdraw his amendment.
