I propose to take Questions Nos. 188 and 189 together.

I wish to advise the Deputy that due to the level of detail being requested in the question, it is not possible to provide the information sought in the time available for reply, I have therefore instructed my officials to contact the Deputy's office with a view to providing the information requested, where possible, through alternative means.
