I thank Mr. Nolan and Mr. McArdle for their presentations. I will not repeat anything that has been said already, other than that a move towards the digitisation of the paperwork would make a lot of sense as a strong recommendation.

I am sure the witnesses are aware that at the moment we are in the process of reviewing the national development plan. Submissions will close this week. Access to the ports for hauliers is something we are talking about. The witnesses will not be surprised to hear I have a strong interest in the access points to Rosslare. What infrastructural developments should be undertaken to improve access to ports?

I have one other question.

With the roll-out of the rapid Covid test centres, including one in Gorey that is in operation, what have the experiences of members of the witnesses' organisations been?
