Written answers (Question to Children)

This question relates to an operational matter for Tusla, the Child and Family Agency. I have therefore referred the matter to Tusla, and asked that a direct response be provided to the Deputy.

I can inform the Deputy that data on the number of cases awaiting allocation is reported monthly, and published in the National Performance and Activity Dashboard on the Tusla website.
