The Minister for Justice has said he fails to understand why there is "hesitancy, confusion or delay" in making information regarding "remuneration, allowances and benefits available by charities".

Alan Shatter made the comment in the Seanad this evening, where statements are being made regarding the charity sector.

It comes ahead of the appointment of a regulator later this year.

Mr Shatter said charity trustees and directors have been placed in a position of trust.

He said their behaviour should be in keeping with that.
