I will come in on what Mr. Irwin said about the media and league tables of the third level colleges students go to. That frustrates me so much because it undervalues people and says they only did an apprenticeship and are only a plumber, painter, electrician or whatever. On occasions, these electricians and plumbers are making an awful lot more money than the guys who went to college for three or four years. That is definitely the case at the moment. I apologise to Mr. Flood for cutting in there.
