I am interested to hear the contributions that have been made. I am particularly grateful to the hon. Member for Southwark, North and Bermondsey (Simon Hughes) and the right hon. Member for Berwick-upon-Tweed (Mr. Beith) for their support. I note entirely what the Minister and the hon. and learned Member for Dudley, North (Ross Cranston) have said, but my view is that the new clause is important and I wish to press it to the vote.
Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:
