Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment
National Broadband Plan: Discussion
With respect, we have been challenged by the Taoiseach to support, or otherwise, this contract and we have asked for these hearings in order that we can make a value judgment on what is before us. If Ms Connolly is suggesting to us that she cannot provide information because she is concerned about what might happen in another jurisdiction, we cannot accept that. That does not amount to commercial sensitivity in this jurisdiction. We are representing the taxpayer. Will Ms Connolly, please, tell us what the value of the infrastructure will be at the end of the 25-year period, based on the assumptions I have put to her?
