Will the Minister send me the figures of how much he will through this process have sought to reclaim from farmers and then give me some estimate of the outstanding cases that still have not been resolved because it is important that we understand that? In measuring what Europe is claiming to do, it gives us an understanding of the measure of how much this was a finicky exercise, which in most cases it was.

The Minister lost €200 million in terms of underpsend in his first year in Government. With this €181 million over our heads at present, we have a significant superlevy taken out of farmers' pockets. It is running to hundreds of millions of euro. Has the Minister any idea when this matter will be brought to a conclusion and when we will have some certainty as to how much money is being taken out of farmers' pockets?
