Tracker Mortgages and Differential Pricing in Insurance: Discussion
I strongly support the publication of the Ombudsman's office's findings. We dealt with that in my legislation in the category of findings etc. because it empowers consumers to see that they may fall into a particular category. Does that cause a particular timing issue whereas the three year rule states that they should have knowledge of the conduct because the customer could have got a settlement and have been through the examination period? The three years is now up before the findings are published. Does the Ombudsman's office anticipate a difficulty or is it looking at the goodwill of the institutions at that point?
