I am not trying to spin out the Committee's proceedings. We have only taken about 30 seconds over the matter, and I do not intend to take much longer. I think that the version that I have proposed is better English. If we do not take the opportunity to flag up such points, we will not, in the long term, obtain changes to the way in which legislation is drafted. Although, I think that ``a'' is better than ``the'', I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Question proposed, That the clause stand part of the Bill.
