It is good to see you back in the Chair, Mr Crausby. We have had an interesting debate, and all right hon. and hon. Members will appreciate that that is important, given Parliament’s role in scrutinising the anti-slavery commissioner’s work. We have been able to put forward our arguments, and I was particularly pleased that my hon. Friend the Member for Foyle spoke about his amendment and the amendments in my name and those of my hon. Friends. We still believe that the relationship between the commissioner and Parliament could be improved, but we have listened to what the Minister has said, and I am not minded at this stage to press the amendment to a Division. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.
