Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Deputy Brendan Smith): Information on Brendan Smith  Zoom on Brendan Smith  It is understood the Report, to which the Deputy refers, was carried out on behalf of the Board of the Irish National Stud Company Ltd. to investigate an internal human resource issue which arose within the Company. Human resource issues arising at the Irish National Stud are a matter for the Board of the Company. The Report to which the Deputy refers was not provided to my Department.

Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Deputy Brendan Smith): Information on Brendan Smith  Zoom on Brendan Smith  It is my understanding that the matter into which the Deputy enquires involved the resignation and not the early retirement of an employee from an organisation.
