I thank Ms Harney. There has been significant concern around the cost of the new student centre. It is around €20 million. There was an increase which was understandable in the context of construction related inflation that has taken place. However, in September 2020 the contractor for the construction of the student centre, unfortunately, was deemed to be in breach of the contractual obligations for the project. Can the committee be provided with an update? What is the latest status of the project?
