Public Accounts Committee
Business of Committee
My point is more fundamental. When the scandal first broke, we had three or four hearings, and then when the Scally report was published, we had one hearing but we did not get into the report and the issues within it that relate to our work. I had sought a report or some sort of scoping exercise on what we will do and the areas of the Scally report we can deal with and then a comment from a process and procedural perspective or a systems failure perspective. I am a little concerned that we are dealing with the matter here and there but there is no coherence to what we are doing. I would prefer if we knew what we were doing, if there was a clear focus and if a report came through the other end of the process and was not subsumed into a periodic report or a report on negligence. That is part, but only a small part, of the CervicalCheck issue.
