Joint Oireachtas Committee on Children and Youth Affairs

Governance and Child Safeguarding Issues in Scouting Ireland: Tusla and Scouting Ireland

10:00 am

Mr. Pat Smyth:

The responsibility with regard to Children First and with child protection rests with Tusla. As the funding body that funds many organisations, the Department has a role around the funding and this is the case with regard to Scouting Ireland. The divisions are clear and are relatively clear in my mind. Will the Deputy clarify?
