Horse Racing Ireland Bill 2015: Committee and Remaining Stages
The section is headed, "Compliance by Bord na gCon with State Bodies Code of Practice". This concerns the insertion of a new section 19A, which states: "The Board shall ... furnish to [the Minister] information in relation to such matters as he or she may specify concerning or relating to the scope of its activities (including its compliance with the Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies...) or its strategy, generally or in respect of any account prepared by the Board under section 19 or the policy and activities". Does this suggest that, because of the insertion of section 19A, the board does not at the moment provide such information to the Minister?
