I asked Tusla this question and understandably its representative said that it was not in a position to dictate Scouting Ireland's appointments. It is not to suggest that Scouting Ireland is incompetent. I do not have an opinion either way on the answer to this question. Was it considered that the safeguarding roles that would be appointed would be external?
