I agree with colleagues. We need greater transparency but I am not sure what the best process would be. We have to be sure that some of the breakdown of costs is not hidden behind construction inflation. We should write to the board of the national paediatric hospital about the three layers that have now been flattened. We should ask for an update on the status of the project because it has been brought to my attention that there are concerns about the rapid escalation of costs in the past six months, something I will talk about on another day.
