I apologise for stepping away and I thank Deputy Devlin for stepping in. I will not ask questions because most of them have probably been answered at this stage. I will give a quick brief of what has happened. In the HIQA report into St. Brigid's, did it give any recommendation to close St. Brigid's? No. We wish to let the public know before we finish this session. On what advice was the HSE informed that the closure was warranted in the first place? Were its reasons in the form of relevant documentation made available to the group, the committee or anybody else?
