Written answers (Question to Children)

The matter referred to by the Deputy is first and foremast an internal matter for the organisation involved.

Notwithstanding this, my officials and I engage regularly with the organisation on a range of matters related to governance issues. I met with representatives of the senior management team and the Board on Thursday last (4th February) to discuss governance matters in the organisation.

I received a letter from Scouting Ireland on 8th February notifying me of the Board's decision regarding the matter the Deputy refers to.

The allocation provided to the organisation for 2021 totals €1,192,727.
