Ricky Fiander: I am glad you raised that difficult mouthful of outcomes-focused, risk-based solutions, because it is quite dear to our hearts. I believe that it will give the industry some flexibility. Perhaps an example of that would be that if we are training an X-ray operator, the outcome is that the X-ray operator can detect prohibited articles. A lot of the training that they have to do is not only about focusing on prohibited articles; they need to know what the European Commission, the European Civil Aviation Conference and the International Civil Aviation Organisation do. For us, given a freehand at that, the outcome could be improved by focusing directly on what is needed in their jobs.
