MS FITZHARRIS: I would not consider them questions on notice. They were questions—

Mr Coe: They were taken on notice formally.

MS FITZHARRIS: I will follow up, again, those questions, since you have raised them today, Mr Coe, in a press statement.

Mr Coe: We clarified each one at the end of the meeting, so you were taking on notice X, Y and Z.

MADAM SPEAKER: I think under continuing resolution—

Members interjecting—
