Public Accounts Committee
2020 Report of the Comptroller and Auditor General and Appropriation Accounts
Vote 38 - Health
We need clarity on that because, based on the information Mr. Watt gave to the Committee of Public Accounts on Tuesday, €873 million is to be drawn down and that would represent 60% of the overall budget. If he is saying it is less than 60%, that would give a significant overrun. If it was 55%, which is what I think he said, that would bring us up to €1.6 billion. Will Mr. Watt clarify what percentage of the project is complete?
