My Lords, the geographical limitation is quite clear; it is self-evidently to Northern Ireland. The energy licence conditions in general are modifications simply intended to ensure that the proceeds of the sale of NFFO NIROCs in Northern Ireland are used to offset costs to Northern Ireland consumers. I do not think that there is a limitation placed on the extent to which that may be achieved; it will probably be conditioned in large measure by the sums realised.
