No, the Minister of State is just not answering the questions. We have asked four times if we could join PESCO afterwards and he has refused to acknowledge that we could. Failing to answer that simple question is close to misleading the Dáil and the public.

I ask the Minister of State another simple question. When did the Government approve this PESCO document and decide that we would join? I think he said it was approximately 20 November.
