That is not reflected in the attendance or contributions this evening, notwithstanding Deputy Kerrane's presence. Her interest in this matter and support for the intentions of the Bill is appreciated. It is Thursday evening. It has been a busy week that will only get busier so I am grateful to those who are present. I appreciate it.

I will not dwell on matters any longer except to thank the Minister for her interest in this and her pledge to work with me and my Labour Party colleagues to deliver on the principles of the Bill. We may differ on some elements of it but there is a degree of unanimity on what needs to be done. It seems to me there may be no requirement for me to move my amendment to the amendment. The Minister has made it clear that she will report back on progress, within the framework of the principles of this Bill, within nine months. That is the case and it is on the record of the House, and I know the Minister is a woman of her word. I look forward to working with her on that. I am happy to withdraw my amendment based on the Minister's commitment.
