Having heard the rationale for 20 hours, I will not press the amendment. However, I ask the Minister to respond at some point to our concerns about the imposition of unpaid work requirements on those defendants who have already been found not to be suitable for such unpaid work, which led to the original imposition of a rehabilitation order. There is a concern that this order should not set up claimants to fail. That important flexibility is needed within the system. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.
