The figure for applicants legal costs for 2011 totalled €3.8 m and for 2012 totalled €3.9 m. These figures include payments in respect of the 3 test cases on blood borne viruses which cost €0.816 m. As the judgment in these cases provides guidance for determining the resolution of blood borne virus related claims, it is not appropriate to include them as regular applicant costs. Including these 3 payments would increase the number of payments to 217 in 2011 and 118 in 2012.
