I thank the Minister for her comprehensive reply. I am still unconvinced, but sometimes one has to beg to differ. I will not press the matter to a vote, but this is an issue that I will continue to raise because I think that we need to go a lot further. I seem to recollect that when the Green Paper was first published, as the Minister will acknowledge, it made little mention of asylum seekers, which always gives the impression that we do not give enough attention to them. We have come quite a way since then but we have not yet reached the best position. I will continue to push for this outside Committee, but I beg to ask leave to withdraw the motion.
