Written answers (Question to Children)

As the Deputy's question relates to operational matters for Tusla, the Child and Family Agency, I have requested Tusla to respond directly to the Deputy on this matter.

I would like to inform the Deputy that I was recently informed by the Chairperson of the Tusla Board, Mr Pat Rabbitte that the reopening of the refuge is now delayed to Quarter 3, 2019 as there are important staffing and governance matters to be resolved.
