The minister's initiative in response to requests from me at stage 2 is very welcome. Amendment 17 will provide for monitoring of the implementation of a scheme that, frankly, still has some uncertainties attached to it. If it emerges that there is dissatisfaction or discontent in certain respects, the arrangements can be revisited by means of a committee inquiry. The safeguard is necessary, and I thank the minister.
