The Department of Children and Youth Affairs uses taxpayers' money and we need to ensure it is being well spent and is going to organisations that are compliant and that achieve the policies and procedures as set out by the legislation. The watchdog for the legislation and the children is Tusla. I would have thought that the Department of Children and Youth Affairs is very much part of that triangle.
