I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for that comment. The National Crime Agency will have the power to apply for these orders for the whole of the United Kingdom, so it could do that in such cases. However, I will consider the points he has made and confirm that we are happy that there are no gaps. I do not consider that there are, but I do understand the point that he makes. I apologise, as earlier I should have said “England and Wales”, not “UK”. I wish to put on the record the fact that that is what we are talking about. Given that clarification, I hope the right hon. Gentleman will withdraw his amendment.
