Public Accounts Committee: Strategic Banking Corporation of Ireland: Financial Statements 2019 (9 Mar 2021)

Colm Burke: Mr. Black might come back to me on the specific issue of the €299,000 that went to the British company because that is what is showing up in its accounts.

Public Accounts Committee: Strategic Banking Corporation of Ireland: Financial Statements 2019 (9 Mar 2021)

Colm Burke: I am dealing with a company at the moment that employs 80 people, has had a major downturn because of Covid-19 and has difficulty currently in getting finance even though, in terms of the banks, it is 80% guaranteed by the State.

Today, we received a letter from Ray Mitchell saying that there is no national scheme to conduct a detailed survey of the people who are leaving the service, be they administration staff, nursing staff, care assistants and doctors. As some very good people are leaving, why not set up a...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Covid-19 Public Health Measures: Update from Health Service Executive (9 Mar 2021)
