Can I ask about freight? We are aware that freight has been identified as a growing security challenge—as we saw, for example, in the East Midlands airport situation with the printer toner recently. At the heart of the Bill is an idea that we are moving towards outcome-based solutions. Is that a fair description of where the industry is right now? Presumably, politicians will want to get involved when there are high-profile events anyway. Does the Bill change that situation?
