We want to see audited financial statements for our diamond companies and we want them to respond to the government call for consolidation. Commercial decisions by companies do not have the effect of changing government policy. And our position is that government has enunciated a policy, and that policy is that we will have one diamond mining company in this country. And therefore, if the decision by a commercial entity is that they will not participate in this one entity, then I think it will be time to bid each other farewell.
