We have negotiated this lump sum, if one can describe it as such, to distribute and this will be done by the HEA across our universities, institutes of technology and technological universities. We have also built an additional €20 million into the base of that going forward. There is a recognition and a commitment from the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform that this is a liability and responsibility that obviously has to be met and cannot be walked away from and not be paid.
