Opposition Members have real concerns about community cohesion and racial profiling, and it sounds as if the Minister too is concerned that the powers should not be used inappropriately. I appreciate what he said in relation to my hon. and learned Friend and the guidance notes. Would the Minister therefore  commit to conducting a review to make sure that these powers are not overused, and that our concerns are just concerns and not reality?
