I thank the hon. Gentleman for his support for the clause. When he referred to Fat Tom’s Kebab Ambulance, I initially thought he was talking about an ambulance that took people to hospital after they had eaten one of Fat Tom’s kebabs. I am glad that he confirmed that that was not the case, and I am sure that his experience of eating kebabs has always been positive and uplifting.

The hon. Gentleman asked for more details regarding Fat Tom’s Kebab Ambulance. Although we already know quite a lot about the kebab ambulance, I would need to know a little more about the specifics before I could tell him whether it would be exempted. That is exactly the sort of issue that the Government will properly address in regulations. If he wants to send me more information about Fat Tom’s Kebab Ambulance and how it operates, I will be happy to confirm the circumstances in which it would fall under the legislation.
