Thank you David & Steve.

Cameron, it seems clear that the teams in Nottingham are well down the 
path of arranging what they need so perhaps our discussion is more 
forward looking. Please confirm you feel the same way?

If so, perhaps we might take a look at the services and the lessons 
learned from past events and tailor it to what might be preferred for 
future events. For example, perhaps in the scope, section B, items 6 & 7 
(prospectus & solicitation), and 8 (website) might make sense to include?
