I can assure the Deputy that we regularly talk to all of the major tech companies. We are in contact with them all the time. I will make sure cybersecurity is on the agenda for those meetings, but there is no lack of communication. Neither is there a lack of communication with small businesses. I meet all their representative bodies every quarter. Engagement is essential. We are the centre of European tech and it would be crazy for us to ignore the expertise we have onshore. We would never do that. I assure the Deputy we have constant engagement at the highest levels with those organisations.
