The Minister of State has managed not to answer the question put by me, Deputy Eamon Ryan and others. Perhaps we might receive a straight "Yes" or "No" answer. Is there any reason we could not join PESCO later? I know that the Minister of State wants us to join it and has said we will have more influence. That is his political perspective. On the formal process of joining PESCO, is it not the case that we could join next year?
