Timelines are missing from the statement and action plan. I read the presentation before our guests arrived. The only question a professional would have of Tusla, if he or she could sit here and ask it, would be whether Scouting Ireland was compliant or not compliant. I understand that everybody is working on the statement of intent but I do not see any timelines. The only date contained in the six points Tusla made for us was for a meeting tomorrow. Why has Tusla failed to provide us with dates and timelines for the delivery of actions?
