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
I want to move onto a number of issues that we are scrutinising today and I to jump to one in particular. The Government provided €1.2 billion to Irish Water in 2017. There is the same issue here with oversight being one step removed because Irish Water was set up in the way it was. The Comptroller and Auditor General does not have a function in auditing and that is something that is under consideration. I do not know if there is any advance on where that is at?
