I thank the Minister for that information. He helpfully used the term "bias", and there is a concern in that regard. We have talked about the potential for bias in respect of, for example, any potential banking inquiry concerning what Members may have said publicly and on the record. Equally, there is a concern around a kind of institutional bias or naked party political bias entering into this process. Will the Minister again take the opportunity to set out the checks and balances in this regard?
