-----from two and three programmes for Government ago, which he did, including the courthouse, the fire station he mentioned in Waterford, and the greenway. They are all previous to this Government. I have asked about the €44 billion of capital expenditure in this programme for Government. Where is the relative percentage for Waterford and the south east?

I have met the Taoiseach umpteen times to discuss the South-East Technological University. Does the Taoiseach know what the Government's total capital investment in the college is in terms of the built infrastructure? It is for the acquisition of 20 acres of land. No public development is happening on the college campus at present. Despite all the promises we have had, it is all private development. I have also asked the Taoiseach about the runway extension at Waterford Airport, which has been caught up in a needless review for almost a year. This discussion is happening while we are looking at the money being spent. The Taoiseach might not take my word for it. I encourage him to come to Waterford.
