Joint Oireachtas Committee on Children and Youth Affairs

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

10:00 am

Mr. Ian Elliott:

I raised it by means of two questions, which were answered by the two agencies. In their answer, Tusla's representatives made reference to the letter. I knew that the two senior managers present had been copied into the letter and, as such, had been in receipt of it. I did not permit much discussion about the content of the letter as a whole, as the Garda was present and I did not feel it would have been appropriate.
