Labour Spokesperson on Children and Youth Affairs has welcomed Minister for Children’s decision to halt state funding of Scouting Ireland while the current board remains in place. 

Commenting today Deputy Sherlock said:

“The minister has made the right decision. Clearly, lessons around proper governance have not been learned within the upper echelons of Scouting Ireland.

“Recent Board decisions left many in Leinster House perplexed. They have to accept that they can’t go back to business as usual. The minister has to protect the taxpayer’s interest here. We demand transparency and proper governance.”
