Personal Insolvency (Amendment) Bill 2014: Committee Stage
I move amendment No. 4:
In page 23, between lines 38 and 39, to insert the following:
“Amendment of section 161 of Principal Act18. Section 161 of the Principal Act is amended by the insertion of the following new paragraph after paragraph (f):“(g) where fees are charged by a personal insolvency practitioner or the Insolvency service of Ireland in the course of their work relating to the mechanisms outlined in the Principle Act, their fees shall not exceed those as stated in January 2015.”.”.
This gives a degree of certainty and clarity about fees. When fees are stated at a certain point in time, we do not want to find later that they have increased.
