The rest of my questions have already been answered. We will move on to the Department of the Taoiseach. I am not sure if Mr. Fraser answered on the contingent liability on page 19. Did my colleague address that? Could we deal with it? It is stated that an indemnity provided by the Department may generate costs. Can Mr. Fraser clarify the position in that regard? What is the nature of the indemnity? To whom was it given? What is the status of the litigation, if any?
