The meetings in January of the boards will be about compliance, which is the broader issue, as Mr. O'Brien said. However, I am trying to narrow it down to the specifics of the internal audit report. I am afraid - the public is rightly afraid - that we will eventually walk away and will be here in February talking about broad compliance statements. In the meantime we will not have verified the specifics of the internal audit report. I want to bring Mr. O'Brien back to where all of this started rather than losing the central point of the audit report in terms of the broader issue.
