Written answers (Question to Children)

I have received correspondence from public representatives in relation to this matter in recent days. I am engaging with Tusla, the Child and Family Agency with regard this correspondence.

It appears from the information provided by the Deputy that the decisions involved are operational matters for Tusla. I understand that the service in question is in correspondence with the CEO of Tusla and that meetings with relevant Tusla officials are being arranged.

I have asked Tusla to respond directly to the Deputy on this matter.
