The Minister has spelt out some compelling reasons why, in terms of some operational details, we might not want to make available all the information that the amendment suggests. Will my hon. Friend reflect on one point? In his example, he spoke about the possibility of one particular police force not being co-operative, for whatever reason. As a London MP, I would be interested if the Metropolitan police were regularly not co-operating with the new agency. He set out good reasons for not accepting the amendment, but he might want to reflect on the public interest if there were not a good relationship between a particular force and the agency.
