I would just add—while we are trying to be more succinct for you, Senator Joyce—the research will be taking place at the places where the coal seam gas is proposed to be undertaken. But I will just see if there is any further information I can get for you.

We will be seeking the best scientific minds. We have not identified the researchers at this point. So there will be a process to establish those brightest minds.
