The Government is giving transitional arrangements where someone who enters an agreement after 8 December ends up paying a higher amount that he or she would have paid if going through before this date. In the interests of fairness the reverse should apply. The dates are arbitrary but I am focusing on the week before, from 1 December. I should like if for Report Stage the Minister could ask his officials to quantify the number of people this would affect, based on representations, and the cost to the Exchequer.
