In case the senator thinks this might be Senate estimates, this is the committee stage of a bill. That is the sort of question, Senator Joyce, that would be welcomed at Senate estimates, but I am just not sure we have the information to hand. We have gathered a range of information in response to questions during the course of the afternoon and evening, and, as I said, I am just not sure we can give you that information right at this moment. But I am sure that, with your forensic questioning at estimates, we will be able to get to the bottom of it for you. But that is more of an estimates question. It is not some sort of test for the limited number of officers that are here tonight.
