Given that one of the hon. Gentleman's colleagues—the hon. Member for Lewes—wrote the report, I suspect that we may not have the abrasive questioning that the hon. Gentleman normally applies to Ministers. When Ministers give the answer, "There are some interesting suggestions about which we might be able to do something", that is normally code for, "We are not going to do much about these rather stupid ideas." Will he reassure us that the sensible proposals put forward by the hon. Member for Lewes will be taken seriously?
