During the debate, Mr Elmore said that these are the things that are sometimes unseen. Well, today, these things have been seen and hopefully heard. This is a very important moment, because we are sending a private Member’s Bill to the next stage of becoming legislation. Congratulations to all Members—to those who have moved and to those who have spoken—to the Minister and to the officials as recorded.

Committee rose.
