Minister, your statement referred to the fact that:

"up to 50 staff from Northern Ireland could be directly impacted".

Obviously, those staff members covered a range of tasks on the ferry. Do you have any concerns that, when the ferries start to sail again between Northern Ireland and Scotland, there may be a safety issue, bearing in mind that the new staff will have been trained in a very short time?
