I will not keep the Committee long. I am disappointed on one level, but I am not surprised that the Government are not listening to the evidence before them. The Minister seeks to suggest that we are trying to oppose a voluntary mechanism,  but the reality is that the Government have had three and a half years. The Minister cannot give us any indication of how long he wants to allow. It could be another three and a half years, or it could be another five years. Heaven knows when we will next get a Water Bill.
