That is even better. I am even more confused. The longer this goes on, the worse it gets. If every time I pick up the telephone and say that I am about to do something that I should not, I am not breaking the law. That is a novel suggestion, and I think it lucky that the hon. Member for Glasgow, Pollok is not here or he would blow a fuse about the way in which this Government Bill seems to be relaxing its attempt to catch criminals by saying that they can pick up the telephone and suddenly become innocent. If the Minister cannot help me out, perhaps my hon. Friend can.
