Department of Justice, Equality and Defence
Gerry Adams (Louth, Sinn Fein)
Question 483: To ask the Minister for Justice and Equality if he will consider introducing legislation to reduce receivership and liquidation professional fees; his views that adequate incentive structures are in place for receivers and liquidators expeditiously to achieve liquidity for a maximum number of creditors and thereby reduce the cost of professional fees; if he agrees the lack of fee regulation for receivers and liquidators is unjustly enriching professional firms to the detriment of unsecured creditors and other creditors further down the preferential chain; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [7696/12]
Alan Shatter (Minister, Department of Justice, Equality and Defence; Dublin South, Fine Gael)
I will contact the Deputy directly in relation to this matter.
