As I presume that Mr McArthur will speak later, I will not—I want to move on.

Finally, there is no doubt that many victims of crime already feel that more is being done to support offenders than to support those who have suffered. We cannot, and should not, airbrush from history the fact that a crime—an offence—has been committed. For those reasons, I ask Parliament to recognise that an offender is an offender, and to vote in favour of my amendments.

I move amendment 4A.
