In addition to asking Sport Ireland to do that, the Chairman should, on behalf of this committee, write to the FAI stating it is a requirement. The lack of permission to ask questions and have them answered at AGMs is a long-standing problem that must be addressed if we are to have confidence in the governance of the FAI. It is not down to Oireachtas scrutiny but a matter of allowing people to do their job. Journalists have a job to do. Would we have come to this precipice had they been allowed to do their job over the years? It would be utterly unacceptable for them not to be included and allowed to do their job.
