Therein lies the problem. The Minister came before the committee the other day and said this was a public health matter and not her responsibility. I fear these issues are falling between the Department of Education and public health bodies. We could obviously improve communications. It would be good to get clarity on where the areas of responsibility are, the nature of the interface between them and whether that interface is working.
