I agree with everything that Fiona Hyslop said. I believe that the minister has done the Parliament, voluntary bodies and charities a service by ensuring that affected bodies are consulted on the timescale for introducing retrospective checking and the fundamental character of such checks. I hope that, in the next parliamentary session, the regulations are considered with particular care, as they will be very important.
