I thank the Deputy for his question.

Since the beginning of the year, I have held nineteen meetings with various credit union stakeholders including credit unions themselves, Representative Bodies, various collaborative ventures, the Registrar of Credit Unions and the Credit Union Advisory Committee. These meetings have proven to be very informative and their outputs will feed into the Review of the Credit Union Policy Framework.

Separately, Department Officials from the Credit Union Policy Team have very regular engagement with sector stakeholders, including stakeholder roundtables, the most recent of which took place in early September. They also act as secretariat to the Credit Union Advisory Committee, which meets on a monthly basis.
