Ms McLaughlin, in the papers that we have received, two points that you have raised about the Bill are about how the arrangements will be applied to foreign airlines and the sanctions for poor management exceeding the costs without impacting the consumer. Could you elaborate on those two points? You said in your answer to the Minister that you are focusing on security as your area of expertise. Do you have any expertise on whether the Bill will have any detrimental effect on freight airlines as opposed to commercial passenger airlines?
