Thank you, Mr Scott, and good morning to the witnesses.

The first question to you, deputy assistant commissioner, is on the new role that the police will have in relation to the Bill. I am concerned that more resources will be required and that the police will have to face more issues. Do you think that that is practicable? What are the issues related to manpower and resources, and do you foresee any problems?
