May I ask one further brief question, please, for clarification on youth unemployment? Go raibh maith agat as an am, a Leas-Chathaoirligh. I agree with Dr. Kinsella on the loss of income and the social ill of youth unemployment, but would he also take into account the fact that so many younger people have been spending the college year at home, locked away in the bedroom? Would he count that as part of the social ill? Is that in the mix or is it just a matter of the loss of income? Does Dr. Kinsella recognise the fact that students have lost out in that regard as well?
