Speaking ahead of the meeting, Committee Chairman, John McGuinness TD, said, “Credit Unions provide an invaluable service to communities all over Ireland. Their not-for-profit status and flexibility makes them the preferred savings option for many people. Tomorrow the Joint Committee will examine the Review of Implementation of the Recommendations in the Commission on Credit Unions Report, published by the Credit Union Advisory Committee (CUAC) last year. We will engage with a number of stakeholder bodies on the report’s recommendations and we look forward to a productive meeting.”
