Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality
Access to Justice and Legal Costs: Discussion (Resumed)
Mr. Gerry Hassett:
Absolutely. We believe in transparency of data. The Deputy said there was an allegation. We are under investigation and I accept that, but people throw allegations around. With respect, there is a process that is ongoing and nothing has been proven. I accept that. As we said, we absolutely support the Central Bank process in terms of the motor market, and if the CCPC or others want to engage in a similar process on the liability market, we will endeavour to do whatever we can to assist that. Good transparency ultimately leads to good policy, which is in the long-term interest of all the players.
