Joint Oireachtas Committee on Children and Youth Affairs
Governance and Child Safeguarding Issues in Scouting Ireland: Tusla and Scouting Ireland
I have one last brief question for Mr. Smyth about his conclusion. Perhaps Mr. Smyth could expand a little on that. Mr. Smyth said: "It was and remains Tusla's intention that the matters raised with Scouting Ireland as part of this process will be dealt with between both organisations to ensure improvements to policies, procedures and practice will be made." What is the role of the Department of Children and Youth Affairs in all of this? As the funding agent and as the overall body, has the Department of Children and Youth Affairs any role here at all?
