I am very interested in your comments about post-acquittal cases, where people have specifically been acquitted by a jury. May I ask one more question? There is an argument about whether the measures listed in, for example, schedule 1 could make it harder for the police to gather evidence. Part of the idea of relaxing the rules on electronic communications is to make this easier. What is your view on the balance of that? Does a TPIM, or a control order, actually make it harder to prosecute?
