Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

Horse Sport Ireland is a company limited by guarantee. This organisational configuration has been in place since its inception in 2008. A comprehensive review of the structure was carried out by Indecon Consultants in 2017 and recommended certain organisational and governance changes which are in the process of being implemented.

I am not aware of any proposal or any request to change its configuration to that of a semi-State body.
