Personal Insolvency (Amendment) Bill 2014: Committee Stage
I support Deputy Collins's amendment. Under the Act as it is now, trying to get information from the banks is like pulling teeth from a hen. The amendment seeks to ensure that the public has the full understanding of how successful the Act and the legislation are as well as ensuring that we as Oireachtas Members can see on an annual basis the issues that are emerging. We would also be looking to amend the Act ourselves moving forward.
