The Sunday Business Post --aricle by Pat Leahy on 7 March 2010-claims that the Govt. has approved the payment of in or about 1.5 million to the underbidders who tendered for the building of the National Aquatic Centre.They had taken legal action because they believed that the original tender process was flawed.Iwonder when will the Govt. explain to us the taxpayers why we are being saddled with this payment. The article says that the Dept. of Arts etc confirmed it had reached a settlement but did not comment on the amount.
