I draw members' attention to the material that has been provided, which is very extensive. There is the public consultation that CIRCULÉIRE submitted to the Department in June. It has been circulated to members. It is very thorough and interesting. Section 1.2 refers to Slovenia's journey from circular economy laggard to leader. I suspect that might be an example we could look to. If Dr. Brennan wants to speak about the Slovenian case study, I would be happy to hear about that if it is relevant to the challenge we have. Generally, I point members to the information CIRCULÉIRE has sent in. It is extensive and there are many references and links to further information. I thank Dr. Brennan for that. Would she like to speak on the Slovenian case study?
