Mr. Derek Moran:

The regulation of the market is a matter for the Stock Exchange and, where there are irregularities, to report to the ODCE. These do not fall within the remit of the Department. I just want to be clear on that. The alleged spike happened before the Department had any visibility on the Siteserv transaction.

The response to the suggestion that there were irregularities was to make available the share register. To date, this is still an allegation of which I am unsure there is any evidence. Do my colleagues wish to speak?
