Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Taoiseach: Tracker Mortgages: Discussion (16 Jan 2018)

Paschal Donohoe: I will meet the chairperson of the Credit Review Office tomorrow afternoon. As the Chairman has been raising the matter, I have got a copy of the consumer protection code 2012.
