I thank the Chairman and the witnesses. I will pick up on some of the queries that have been raised with us, particularly in the area of data protection, monitoring and enforcement. I appreciate that there are many questions still to be answered on this matter.

Is it the case that there is a question over the concept of data minimisation and how that will be ensured, and enforced? Is it the case that the proposal allows member states three options to provide the wallet app? Is there the potential that the private sector would have access to highly confidential and sensitive personal data? How is this aspect being considered and how will it be managed?

Mr. Lowry or his office said previously that it is not yet known where responsibility will lie for enforcement of the obligation on the private sector digital service providers. Mr. Lowry, is there any further update on that?
