There have been a number of references to the Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland. Its terms of reference were approved by the Government on 19 May. These include addressing the structures and management arrangements.

I have written to the Director of Corporate Enforcement requesting a report under section 955 of the Companies Act 2014. That report will outline the issues arising from the investigations by the ODCE into Anglo Irish Bank since 2008. I have asked for that report to be furnished to me on 23 June. I will bring it to the Attorney General and the Cabinet and then before the House to determine how to proceed. I will examine procedures - if necessary, everything will be on the table - and discuss solutions.

I know that people are outraged. I am extremely disappointed, too, but I cannot show my outrage here. It is my task, with Deputies, the Attorney General and the Cabinet, to find solutions. Everything is on the table. I am not defending what happened - it was appalling. I expect the report to be finalised as a matter of urgency.

Other questions were asked.

Show your outrage, Minister, and stand out from the FG herd of uncaring spokespersons for the elite.

You have a short time left as minister before you get your dues under a new boss. Show your outrage!
