We will not necessarily be opposing this, but I want to find out more about it. The database is only for authorisations. Does that not mean that we are missing something here in terms of forward planning? Should it not be more consistent with the standards for data and information that are set out in Article 10, for example, of the maritime spatial directive, so that the database should be used for planning? What kind of timeframe are we looking at for the delivery of the database?
