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:

The comments made are practical. I made a point about practice. If I want to criticise it and inform myself as fully as I possibly can on what actually took place, I cannot be present when the process is taking place, but I can look at the written record and talk to the individuals who were present. That is critical in terms of the way one approaches the issue of supervision.
