No system is watertight. We have a contribution regime, for example, for parties and candidates. It says that you can only use your own money to make a contribution. We know from incidents in the past that this is sometimes circumvented. At some point, we have to accept that the regime will not be absolutely airtight. The question is, where is the right balance? I'm saying there's no clear answer, which is why I didn't make a specific recommendation. I'm offering avenues for the committee to reflect upon this issue.
