I thank the witnesses for their presentations. I had to leave the meeting for a couple of seconds so I apologise if any of my questions have been already asked. In regard to the expert group not making a recommendation for an independent route for the making of a complaint, is there a reason for that? Mental Health Reform is firm in its opinion that there should be an independent route for making complaints to ensure parity between mental and physical health. Will the opportunity be taken to look at that again?
