It is a very important point. People constantly say that we will be fined and punished. However, a recent report noted that we get money back at European level through the mitigation fund. I am not sure if the report was from the Department of Finance or perhaps the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform. That figure seems to be significantly higher than the fines we have incurred so far, which range from €121 million to whatever this year's figure is.
