Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Taoiseach
Law Reform Commission Report on Regulatory Powers and Corporate Offences: Engagement
Mr. Raymond Byrne:
I do not think that anybody can guarantee that but we are also conscious that that is certainly a challenge for those who raise issues. We have seen that in many different contexts where somebody makes a protected disclosure. That creates challenges but insofar as the legislation can provide protection, that protection is there. I do not think any of us can guarantee that that would be a solution to all the problems but at least a structure is in place. Perhaps that needs to be improved but the issue with protected disclosures is a separate issue on which the Oireachtas has put in place very clear legislation for many different contexts.
