I thank the Minister for his clarification on the areas to which the clause is likely to apply. He said that that would be finalised in secondary legislation. I will go away and think about whether items of such importance merit being put on the face of the Bill, rather than going through secondary legislation, and I might well come back to that at a later stage. I take the point made by the hon. Member for Broxtowe that the amendment only loosely makes the point that I intended to make, but I raised it on a probing basis because I thought it was important that we had a debate about the fairness of the procedures whereby someone would effectively give up their rights. I think that the hon. Member for Hastings and Rye and, to an extent, the Minister recognised that. I am pleased that we have had the debate and will think a little further on it. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.
