Yes. Let us not go further into the nature of the Lewin and Sweeney exercise, but it seems like a wartime convoy going at the speed of the slowest ship when there seems to be a lot of consensus on what needs to be done.

Until the odd-job man makes an appearance, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the motion.
