Joint Oireachtas Committee on Children and Youth Affairs
Governance and Child Safeguarding Issues in Scouting Ireland: Tusla and Scouting Ireland
I thank the witnesses for appearing before the committee. At a previous meeting we spoke about the traffic light system that has been in place since 2012. I think a handful of cases were flagged as red around that time. We can then fast-forward to an investigation by Mr. Ian Elliott when about 300 cases were flagged as red. How did that dramatic change come about?
