Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment
National Broadband Plan: Discussion
I refer to the reappraisal. There is a section in the report that deals with quantifying the costs of viable options and specified sources of funding. It goes on to deal with the financial appraisal model. It runs to 14 pages, 12 of which have been redacted. There is almost nothing left on those pages. Does Ms Connolly think it would be in the public interest, the interests of the taxpayer and those of the Oireachtas, given that the taxpayer will cough up big time to the tune of €2.95 billion to get the project under way, to see what is on those 12 pages?
