As the provision is already on the statute book, it is within the power of this Government, or a future Government, to introduce regulations to do so. However, we are still committed to the voluntary approach, and we want to give it time to work. Landlords and the water industry working together is a constructive example of how things can be done, and we want to give the voluntary approach time to work. For that reason, I urge the hon. Gentleman to withdraw his new clause.
