Public Accounts Committee
Business of Committee
I agree with the previous speakers. I will be as brief as I can. Questions were asked of the Department and Bord na gCon when they were last before us. Casting my memory back to the exchanges, it was not a good showing from the board and its CEO. Their performance left much to be desired. The overall question related to whether a bailout had been given by a Department to an organisation audited by the Comptroller and Auditor General, namely, Bord na gCon, which is accountable to us, and whether the sale of the property was effectively that bailout. I was not aware of the two valuations and I am unsure as to whether the Comptroller and Auditor General was at the time. Maybe that information would not have come across his desk anyway.
