Keir Starmer: I do not think we are at odds, but I need to ensure that I understand. The process is straightforward where a driving licence is invalid or already revoked, but if a licence is not revoked and is, on its face, valid, the purpose of the provision is to allow a revocation process to be completed.

Keir Starmer: I am probably being obtuse. Are you inviting me to stop at this stage?
Keir Starmer: Just to clarify that point, what is the position if the Secretary of State cancels the leave during that period?
Keir Starmer: The Solicitor General is dealing with a very important point and reassuring us that an assessment will be made, particularly when it involves children, but how precise will that assessment exercise be? How will the detailed circumstances be ascertained and what is the remedy if it is thought that a wrongful decision has been made?
Keir Starmer: Will the Solicitor General give way?
