Public Accounts Committee
Business of Committee (Resumed)
I was late getting in but chapter 7 of the Comptroller and Auditor General's work refers to Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture. The relevant company refused freedom of information requests and indicated it did not fall under that process. Combining county council and other public funding, it was 87% publicly funded. Does the Comptroller and Auditor General need to audit those accounts in full or what is his opinion on that?
