Finally, as Rehab comes out with its hands up, focus can shift to rebuilding for future
It was overshadowed by the Frank and Angela no-show but, in time, yesterday will be seen as a good day for Rehab. After months in the mire, it made the first tentative steps towards rebuilding the shattered reputation of what is still a fine organisation.
Serious questions remain – more of which later – but the five representatives of the company came into the Public Accounts Committee with their hands up and, in the main, tried to give straight answers to straight questions.
There was none of the evasion or the 'what have we done to deserve this?' wounded tone that so characterised Angela Kerins' performance before the same committee a few weeks ago.
