Credit Institutions (Financial Support) Bill 2008: Committee Stage.
Tommy Broughan (Dublin North East, Labour)
I want to make the point. Some 90,000 young families were ripped off in a callous way by institutions and I was told by the regulator, who has such a woeful track record, that what I sought could not be done. However, the Minister or his predecessor did not rush in here and try to protect householders and he is not rushing in here today to protect them. His motives are first and foremost to protect some grossly irresponsible bankers who behaved so badly.
