Both your submissions correctly focus on the impacts on your members, which is entirely logical. Having had a chance to look at the Bill, do you or your members have any views on, or welcome, its other aspects? Mr McAuslan, from my time at the Department for Transport, I remember your statistic about 58% of pilots going through security and feeling more stressed by the time they reach the plane. Will you expand on why pilots feel that going through routine security gives them additional difficulty and causes greater stress?
