I am not arguing against that. I understand the time constraints but, for example, it would have been normal for us to have four or five sessions of pre-legislative scrutiny on a big Bill. Some members will read the papers and others will not. If we have a really technical Bill, we might like to question some of the experts. My preference is to have two sessions. When the Land Development Agency Bill or the marine planning Bill come before us, we will not get away with a single session. This is for the Chairman's benefit.
