This is a highly contentious set of new clauses which, I suspect, will detain the Committee for hours. In fact, it is a set of small amendments of a minor and technical nature. The purpose of the amendments is to ensure that the Bill is drafted as clearly as possible. To this end, I have tabled a set of amendments to include further definitions of terms, including “young carer”, “parent” and “child’s carer” in the glossary at clause 79(1) to ensure maximum clarity. These changes reflect our determination to get the detail of the Bill absolutely right, rather than any change in policy. I hope they will receive the Committee’s approval without the need to detain ourselves any longer.

Government amendment 1 agreed to.

Clause 7, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
