Markets in Financial Instruments Bill 2018: Committee and Remaining Stages
I commend the Minister of State on his stewardship of the Bill. The point made by Senator Norris is one on which, as the Minister of State said, we should have a debate at a future date. The Minister of State and Senator Kieran O'Donnell were members of the Joint Committee of Inquiry into the Banking Crisis. The point that drove people daft was that nobody in the eyes of the ordinary citizen, an gnáth-dhuine, was held to account. They went into courtrooms and people walked away. I am not going to question the courts.
