On a point of order, Mr Hood. I am grateful to you for informing the Committee of the situation, but if we hear from the Minister that the Bill, if passed in its present form, would create a cost to the public purse, and if the House authorities then felt that they had got it wrong and that the Bill should be subject to a money resolution, I understand that the normal practice would be for the whole Bill to be recommitted. Delightful though it is to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hood, I for one would not want to examine this Bill in Committee twice. May we be reassured that the recommittal of the Bill is not a possibility?
