I think I've already mentioned that it was an idea. The Deputy Minister and anybody else in this country have a right to ideas, thinking of the good things that they would want to do.
On the question that you are asking on giving assurance, you've already asked that question. It's Question 276, which is still coming up. So, I would rather you wait until we get to that question, then I can deal with all the other aspects of what you are asking now. Thank you.
