Written answers (Question to Transport)

My Department’s Head of Internal Audit is notified of allegations/disclosures received which invoke the Protected Disclosures Act 2014 and monitors them to ensure they are processed on a timely basis.

Section 22 of the Act requires a public body to prepare a report setting out the number of protected disclosures made to it in the course of the immediately preceding year and certain other information relating to any such protected disclosures.  

The information for 2015 and 2016 is available on the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport Website at the following link.
