I am slightly surprised by the hon. Member for Huntingdon wanting to maintain four quangos when we are suggesting having only one, but if the Conservatives now want to increase the number of quangos, that is their choice.

It is quite clear that the direction of travel is towards greater co-ordination and I would not be surprised, from what the Minister is saying, if that is the result after time. I see no merit in dividing the Committee on this. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the motion.
