I beg to move amendment No. 240, in page 60, line 15, at end insert—

'(d) such other persons or organisations as he thinks appropriate.'.

I should be able to deal with this probing amendment quickly. We want to know whether it is the Government's intention to prescribe who must be consulted when altering or devising a community safety strategy. Will the Secretary of State be able to consult others, or will he be confined to the three parties referred to in subsection 4(a), (b) and (c)?
