On a point of order, Mr. Beard. It might be convenient if I raise one other matter before we resume our discussions. Although the hon. Member for North-East Derbyshire (Mr. Barnes) reminded us that the entire procedure is a mere formality, I would like to ask the Minister whether we will have sight of draft regulations or guidance on this technical and important part of the legislation.

It may be helpful if I check out the detail of what will be necessary and what is available and communicate that to the Committee shortly, either orally or in writing.Clause 20 Duty to make references in relation to completed mergers
