The Shame of Ireland

The Shame of Ireland

The Minister Approved Consultancy without knowing how much the cost would be?

Clearly in breach of his Duty under the Act as Necessity and Cost are the Two Delimiters!

223. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the number of consultants Caranua has employed and the amount it has paid them since the formation of Caranua on 31 March 2013; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [31880/16]

Caranua, the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund Board, is an independent statutory body established pursuant to the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund Act 2012. Section 7(7) of that Act provides that Ministerial approval be sought where the Board wishes to engage consultants or advisers. A number of consultancies have been approved under that section since the establishment of the organisation. The detailed information sought by the Deputy, in particular that regarding amounts paid to consultants is not available to me as it is a day to day matter that is the responsibility of the Board. I have arranged to have the Deputy's question forwarded to Caranua with a view to having a response provided to him directly as soon as possible.
