Finally, clauses 37 and 38 simply set out the Bill’s legal interpretation and short title in the usual manner for such legislation. I commend them to the Committee.

We have no concerns about clauses 37 and 38, you will be pleased to hear, Mr Paisley.

As this may be the last time I get to contribute to the debate today—

I am not intending to speak to any new clauses, so I thought to take this opportunity simply to thank you, Mr Paisley, for chairing, and to thank all the Clerks and House authorities. I thank all Members, Opposition Members in particular, and the third parties, including the Chartered Institute of Taxation, the Low Incomes Tax Reform Group, the Association of Taxation Technicians and the ICAEW, whose input has been invaluable.
