I would like to follow up with Mr. O'Brien what Deputy Dowds said about the legal issues here and the possibility of people taking a case against the HSE and so on. Mr. O'Brien said that no legal defence is really being offered by the HSE. Have Mr. O'Brien and his colleagues in the HSE estimated how much the possibility of cases being taken and having to be settled might cost the State? Have they entered into such an examination yet?
