In the short term, we are talking about mobile labour that may be attracted to some of the work here. Is it necessary to put measures in place to control rents? At the moment, there is a difficulty with the rental market in Dublin. It is driving people out of the capital and to the regions. It is acting as a barrier for this highly productive mobile labour that may wish to move here. Are rents a barrier in the short to medium term? Could more be done in the short term to attract that labour?
