People are now really engaging with, once the bill is in place, how the governance process and consultation process are going to roll out. I realise that you cannot pre-empt something that the commissioner will undertake, but I am wondering if it is possible that there could be an undertaking that, before the consultation starts, the development of the consultation process is discussed with the board or, more broadly, with the not-for-profit sector so that there is not a misunderstanding from the start about how that consultation process will occur.
