Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government
Local Government Performance Indicators and Public Spending Code: National Oversight and Audit Commission
Mr. Michael McCarthy:
I think it does but ultimately it is a matter for Government, the Minister and the Department. I know the Moorhead report looked a number of different issues. Instinctively, I think the issue will be revisited. One will often find a higher concentration on that when there is a high profile resignation or when local elections are in the offing. Suddenly, there is a focus on that. Until that point in time there may not be a focus on that but ultimately that would be a policy matter for the Minister and the Government.
