Posted on July 12, 2016 at 02:25 PM

Leaders' Questions today saw the Labour Leader Brendan Howlin seek answers on whether all section 38 agencies are in full compliance with HSE requirements on corporate governance.

Deputy Howlin asked:

  • Will the Tánaiste confirm that all section 38 agencies are in full compliance with the HSE requirements regarding board and corporate governance?
  • Will she confirm that all agencies adhere now to Department of Health payscales in all circumstances?
  • Will she confirm that the chairs and directors of all section 38 agencies have signed the compliance statement, as is now required?
  • Will she confirm that all of the overpayments to individuals employed in these agencies which have been notified to the Department of Health have now ceased?
  • Will she confirm the Government is satisfied with the oversight arrangements that are now in place to monitor what is State expenditure of €3.8 billion?
