Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Taoiseach
If it does come in below €1.4 billion, my judgment at this point is that it would do so by a small amount. The reason for that is we are referring to many costs that have now been tendered. As to whether I believe it will go above the larger figures that have been quoted at the Committee of Public Accounts and elsewhere, at this point I do not, but clearly as we look at how this project is going to be managed moving forward, I need to ensure that it does not happen.
