Go raibh maith agat, a Cheann Comhairle.  Gabhaim buíochas leis an Aire.  I thank the Minister for his answer.  In light of some of the procedures in place, would the Minister consider a specific review?  There are contracts worth less than £10,000, yet tenderers are expected to have an income of £2 million.  Many small businesses feel that they are not in the range of earning £2 million but are ruled out of tenders of less than £10,000.  Would he consider a review of such incidences?
