As Deputy Sherlock indicated, he sent me an email recently outlining those issues and concerns from members of the organisation.
The staff and board have been engaging in and trying to finalise a reform process in recent months and weeks. I received the email in question and I have asked my officials to pass it on to Ms van Turnhout and for her to take account of the contents in making her decisions in that regard. As Deputies are aware, Ms van Turnhout is an independent person working with the organisation. I believe the most appropriate course was to send her Deputy Sherlock's request and to bring it to her attention.
We are all conscious of the fact that time is passing, that there is a funding issue and that these things need to be resolved as soon as possible.
