The Deputy's question is very relevant, and I will be very brief in my answer. As I indicated earlier, I contacted Science Foundation Ireland and asked them to meet me within a few weeks so that we can discuss the priorities, the provisional deadline and so on. As I said, any Deputy in the House who is interested in the sciences, research and development and so on will be welcome to come to that meeting. Until I have that meeting there are some questions that I cannot answer, but when I do meet them, I will extend an invitation to the Deputy to come to that meeting with me, and I would be delighted if he would take up that invitation.
