Public Accounts Committee
Caranua: Financial Statements 2019
What I am trying to get to is what intervention or guidance is received either from the Department involved or, probably more correctly in this case, from the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, when a State body or semi-State body overseeing significant amounts of money, perhaps not taxpayers' money but certainly money within the State purview, is set up. Over the lifetime of the current Government, it is likely that other semi-State bodies will be established. I am trying to get to the point where I understand what guidance Caranua was given and what connections it had with the Department during this process.
