I heard what the Minister said. I am glad that we have had a good debate. I am not convinced that he has satisfactorily described the test as set out in subsection (6) and how it will or will not apply to certain charities. That is an important point. I also feel that the provisions in the Bill discriminate against charities. That is the kernel of the argument that my hon. Friends have put. We may wish to return to the matter, but I now press the amendment to a vote.
