My hon. Friend is being generous in giving way. In answer to the Minister’s intervention, it is not only householders who are concerned. I have met companies in the midlands and elsewhere that have said that, because of the changes, they are rethinking where they invest and what they prioritise. Although the Minister’s announcement might be very welcome, there is now a hiatus, which is a classic symptom of the Government’s policies—they are having to rejig their thinking to catch up with a misfortune of their own making.
