We should not forget Deputy Varadkar. There have been four Ministers for Health involved in the negotiations at various times. Last year, some controversy again arose in respect of this issue. The Taoiseach and the Tánaiste responded to concerns from Members of the Oireachtas. At that time, the Tánaiste put on the record his concerns regarding governance, ownership and so on. I would imagine that sparked a fresh round of negotiations the Minister will have been involved in. How intense were those negotiations over recent months, whether it was three months, six months or a year? How involved was the Minister? Who was involved on the other side?
