Written answers (Question to Children)

I would like to inform the Deputy there are four agencies which are funded by the Exchequer through my Department's Vote. These are the Adoption Authority of Ireland (AAI); the Family Support Agency (FSA); the National Educational Welfare Board (NEWB) and the Ombudsman for Children. With effect from 1 January 2012, I have taken responsibility for the Children Detention Schools as provided in Part 10 of the Children Act 2001.

Apart from the Ombudsman for Children's Office which does not have a board, I am responsible for all Board of Management appointments.

Since I took office in March, 2011 there have been 35 appointments to the Boards of Management under the aegis of my Department. I can confirm to the Deputy that I have not made any appointments to any commercial bodies, state owned banks or the Judiciary since taking office.

Set out in tabular format are the details of all appointments made by me to the Boards of Management under the aegis of this Department.
