I agree with the Government that the amendment is sensible, and my party is happy to go agree to it. I ought to add that the Government's decision to amend the earlier part of clause 296 in this amendment also helps the argument that I am about to advance for my party's amendment, which is listed next. However, I will not anticipate that debate.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment made: No. 331, in page 171, line 33, leave out from 'forfeiture' to 'until' and insert

'under section 297, or for its release under section [Victims], is made'.—[Mr. Bob Ainsworth.]
