Good legislation needs good analysis, not good anecdotes. It also needs good consultation. May I bring you back to clause 14, as I do not think we covered that as much as we should have done? I do not think we have a particularly good settlement when it comes to clause 14 and whistleblowing. This, from you, Ms James, is an absolutely excellent submission, but could you summarise what you think the problems are in the lack of consultation—I think you say that it is a missed opportunity—on what clause 14 should look like in order to make it better?
