Mr. John McCarthy:

It will be interesting to look at the analysis we do in regard to the third party costs we pay in 2014 as compared with 2013. It is probably only at that stage that I will have some evidence to answer the Deputy's question. From our point of view, we are determined to work with the SCA to ensure we minimise the costs involved. I believe the 2014 analysis will, in due course, present some interesting results.
