64 Voluntary Organisations were told that they “may have to consider putting those staff on protective notice.”

I ask the Leader to arrange a debate on a letter sent to 64 national organisations in the community sector in which they were told to place their staff on protective notice. The organisations in question include the Irish Deaf Society and other groups which protect the most vulnerable. The letter was issued because the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, Deputy Phil Hogan, was unable to make a decision on funding in May or June. It is not acceptable that organisations which protect the most vulnerable should be told to place their staff on protective notice because the Department cannot make a decision.
