I do not have to hand any further information from the United Kingdom Government on the timetable for that, but I pay tribute to Mr FitzPatrick's tenacious efforts on behalf of his constituents in Dundee West. All the effort that goes into the development of computer games is quite remarkable. I visited Realtime Worlds not so long ago and was amazed at the number of people who are paid to sit and play computer games all day—it was a marvellous experience to watch. The computer games industry makes a fantastic contribution to the Scottish economy, and I pay tribute to Mr FitzPatrick's efforts to encourage the UK Government to take the step that he outlined.
