We are very interested in seeing that. When will we see the report regarding progress and final costs for the children's hospital? We have been pursuing this matter for a considerable period. The hospital board told us a long time ago that the report had gone to the Department. The Department has had a considerable period to look at it. We are anxious to know about the progress. This is the biggest capital project undertaken by the State and the taxpayer is digging deep for it. We all want to see the children's hospital in place. The committee has been following this closely. Members did a site visit before the summer recess and followed it during the recess. When will the report be available to the committee? We are answerable to the public, as is Mr. Colman. When will we see it?
