General expenses recouped to date specifically in relation to the Athlone boundary review committee amount to €12,904. This recoupment was in respect of expenses incurred by the committee members. The members provided their time and expertise on a pro bono basis, and no fees were paid to them.

An amount of €70,460 was paid to the Institute of Public Administration for its work in supporting boundary committee reports commissioned in 2016 in respect of Athlone, Carlow, Drogheda and Waterford collectively.

Details of any costs incurred by the individual local authorities from their own resources are a matter for these authorities, and I have no function in this matter.
