Hon Maynier, let me start by correcting something here. There is no former Minister and a new Minister. We are Ministers from the same government. I think you have to get that clear in your head.
The next thing that I want to say is: You are right; I have just said that we will embark on a new process, and I have outlined the process. I said, currently it is with the Defence Force itself, with the Air Force, where the staff target is being determined and the requirement is being scoped in relation to the needs and the costs. What this means is that we are not turning a blind eye to the fact that the extent to which we spend on such matters should not impact negatively on some of the immediate priorities of government.
If we were insensitive, we would not be undertaking this process. We are doing this precisely because we are concerned and therefore have to ensure that the costs are aligned to the need.
There is talk about millions, but I do not even know what the Boeing is going to cost, if we are buying a Boeing or a seven whatever and what the names are. What I do know is that we have embarked on a responsible process that is under way. When that process is completed, we will then, of course, make an announcement.
We have mentioned, when we said this matter was not on the table yet, that whatever process we embark upon will be a transparent one.
By the way, it is also important to note that, as all of this was happening, we had actually required legal opinion. We have received legal opinion and it determined, amongst others, that the matter was not on the table because the agreement with the company that you referred to had already lapsed by 15 June. Thank you.
