I support the views expressed by Senator Ó Murchú, which I will not repeat. I was disappointed to read in at least one of the national newspapers that in the saga of overcharging by the banks another new chapter has been added. The charge applicable to transactions at convenience ATMs in the department stores and supermarkets is five or six times the charge normally applicable to those at standard ATMs. This is another clear example of the way the financial institutions here are thumbing their noses at the citizens of this country. I ask our spokesperson on finance, Senator Mansergh, and the Leader, to exhort the Minister responsible to come to the House to outline proposals on what he will do to address this outrageous new development in banking circles.
