I wish to raise one other issue. A number of weeks ago, we received a reply about companies in Cork Institute of Technology, CIT. I was never happy with it. I spent a few weeks trying to dig down into it. I have done much analysis. With the permission of the Chair, I will ask some questions of the Higher Education Authority, HEA, and CIT. I will put them in writing to committee members so that I do not take time here and I would appreciate if the Chairman forwarded them on. I think that the submission sent to us does not deal with the questions that we asked. I have drilled down into the companies. I cannot find information on some of them or details on some of the questions I asked. It is a bit of a whitewash and I want to go back and ask a number of questions. I will keep it to as low a number as I can.
