Somewhere along the line the Minister stated that a banking inquiry would be a hybrid inquiry. Sections 6 to 10, inclusive, provide for five separate types of inquiry. However, the Minister stated the banking inquiry would not fit neatly into any of the five types and would be a hybrid inquiry with elements of section 6 and section 7 inquiries. Why is the Minister defining the five separate types of inquiry in a way that does not fit the first task the Government would like the Oireachtas to conduct?
