Colm Burke: I confirm I am in Leinster House. I thank Mr. Moloney for his presentation. I also thank him and all of his staff for the work done in this area. As he outlined in his report, they have saved the State money. I want to raise an issue that is not referred to in the report. It is with regard to the mechanism for dealing with urgent decisions. When we faced into the pandemic urgent...
