Thank you. The next table looks at the scope of ethics bodies for journalism. In most other jurisdictions, the ethical body is composite, in the sense that it covers the printed press, broadcasting and online. It's only in a few countries such as ours that it only covers the printed press, but there may be all sorts of historical reasons for that, which are maybe quite complicated to analyse.

May we move on to the next point, level of state involvement in self-regulatory bodies. I think you mean here two differently related aspects. The first is the degree, if any, of statutory underpinning and secondly, whether there's a state levy or whether it's self-funding; is that correct?
