I see that the Minister is moving on from the point about age assessment. It seems to me a bit of a theme today that there are these conflicts of interest. There is a problem when the assessments are in the hands of people who, if they decide one thing, it will lead to their authority having to stump up a significant amount of money, and if they decide something else, it will not. How does she hope to safeguard victims of slavery from that conflict of interest when the assessments are being drawn up?
