After the terrorist attack at Glasgow airport, we became aware in Scotland that we were part of the terrorist area. We have talked about dealings with the Crown Prosecution Service. Do you have dealings with the devolved Parliaments, with Scottish law being different from English law? When you put out control orders—and when you are going to use TPIMs—does that happen under English law that may operate in Scotland, or is there some kind of cross-border relationship? That would, of course, also apply to Northern Ireland.
