The Audit Report on neglect cases and its recommendations have informed the ongoing development of services to ensure improved wellbeing and outcomes for children. This audit was commissioned as part of the wider process of continued improvements into the practices in child protection.

My predecessor, Minister Fitzgerald, provided replies to the Deputy on 12th February and 27th March and the position remains as outlined in these recent responses. I will be happy to provide an update for the Deputy as matters are further progressed.
