I propose to take Questions Nos. 69 to 71, inclusive, together.

The decision on whether members of the Irish Defence Forces will participate in the 2019 CISM World Games in China is currently under consideration and as such there are no details of costs and numbers travelling, if any, available at present. When the details become available I will forward them to the Deputy.
