Mr. O'Kennedy: The terms of reference of the commission in question required it to inquire into the accommodation needs of the constituent colleges of the National University of Ireland only. The commission was not concerned with the accommodation requirements of either Trinity College, Dublin, or of St. Patrick's College, Maynooth.
The information requested by the Deputy in parts (1), (2) and (3) of his question is contained in the commission's published report, as is also the information requested in parts (4) and (5) in relation to UCD, UCC, and UCG.
The cost of the commission's work was included amongst my Department's general administrative expenses  and it would not be possible to extract particulars of the cost at this stage.
