I simply say that I welcome amendment 129. At stage 2, Daniel Johnson lodged a similar amendment and I indicated support of it in principle, subject to the removal of provisions that related to the publication of a summary of Parole Board recommendations, which I believed would be better suited to the Parole Board rules. I am therefore pleased that Daniel Johnson has agreed to remove the requirement to publish a summary of recommendations and I am happy to support his amendment.
