Mr. Seamus McCarthy:

If I might interject, the Deputy will see note 6.1 on screen. This lists the payments per inquiry in 2016 and 2017, but also gives the cumulative figure or total cost incurred to the end of 2017. The figure for "Tribunal of Inquiry (payments to Messrs Haughey and Lowry)" is €61.3 million so far.
