I propose to take Questions Nos. 435 and 436 together.

The matter referred to is under active investigation by my Department and therefore I am not in a position to provide the information requested at this juncture. I will arrange for a reply to issue to the Deputy as soon as the investigation is completed which I expect will be in September.
