I am just curious to know if you are able to inform me. You had very strict security arrangements here in the United Kingdom and they worked well, but other countries may not do them so well. I was in Kenya and there were no security checks in relation to liquids and so on. I thought that was unusual, but that is just an example. Can you influence security in other countries through your aviation contacts to ensure that they can lift their levels of security? Do those measures have to be done by Governments, or can they be done business-to-business? I am curious to know how we can ensure that security levels increase. Make all the effort here and not elsewhere, and there is a gap.
