Public Accounts Committee
2017 Annual Report of the Comptroller and Auditor General and Appropriation Accounts
Vote 7 - Office of the Minister for Finance
Chapter 1 - Exchequer Financial Outturn for 2017
Chapter 22 - Irish Fiscal Advisory Council
Given what we saw lately with the national children's hospital and other such matters, I am interested in it. Obviously, it was new ground, there was a big liquidation being drawn up - the biggest in history, and I very much hope to hear back from Mr. Moran that KPMG was not consulted and did not advise on the formulation of the terms of reference. If the answer is other than that, we potentially have problems. This committee recommended the establishment of a committee of inspection for the liquidation. Why did the Department not embrace that recommendation?
