My interpretation of amendment 51—as ever, I am willing to be put right—is that it would mean that, unless the person carrying out the activities in section 1A(2) had a gun with them in every scenario, they would be guilty of a crime. I cannot think that that is what Sylvia Jackson intends or what Parliament would want. Accordingly, I vigorously oppose amendment 51. Unsurprisingly, I shall support Mr McGrigor's amendment 7.

I move amendment 37A.
