In respect of No. 2195B, we note it and are asking for clarification in that, when a claim is being processed by the main contractor with the contracting body, where stands the subcontractor in the meantime? How does that fit into that legislation?

No. 2196B is from Robert Watt, Secretary General of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, dated 29 May, in response to our request for an unredacted version of the memo regarding the national broadband plan from the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform to the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment. A copy of this memorandum had been provided but Mr. Watt advises that there is still some redaction. The earlier letter dated 16 April that people had seen in the media had significant redactions. There are a couple of small redactions.
