Listen: PAC Raises Concern About Under-Spending At Dept. Of Children & Youth Affairs.

: 06/13/2019 - 10:29

A Fine Gael TD is expressing serious concern at the constant under-spending in the Department of Children and Youth Affairs.

Department officials will attend a meeting of the Public Accounts Committee, on which sits Kildare North Social Democrat TD, Catherine Murphy  today to discuss the issue.

The department returned almost 59 million euro in 2017 and 48 million in 2016, while 1.5 million was unspent by Tusla in 2017.

Peter Burke, a member of the PAC, says this trend is a major worry.
