As I said, a range of issues concerning silicosis and the threat that it poses to workers in the construction industry, including those who have unfortunately contracted silicosis, are exactly the issues that Minister Burke is dealing with at the moment. I understand that you're seeking an assurance or some information about what will happen to workers who become sick, if Caesarstone were to exit the market. I'm not briefed on that precise matter but I'm happy to provide you with some information about that.
