Ms Winter, thank you very much for making this statement and coming today. I'm sure you heard me say to Mr Hurst that the conflict in Northern Ireland is an extra dimension to this problem that I am considering, which is an extra dimension among many other dimensions, and I'm sure you will understand why that aspect of it could be an Inquiry of its own -- I'm not suggesting there should be one, but it could be -- and therefore to keep within my terms of reference, I have to be rather careful about how far I go. I hope you understand that that's not a discourtesy to you and it's not a demonstration of lack of interest. I hope it could be considered a demonstration of focus on what I really have to pay attention to.
