I propose to take Questions Nos. 122 and 227 together.
I have been advised that given the on-going nature of the investigations by the authorities, including in particular the investigation being conducted under the Central Bank’s Administrative Sanctions Procedure into historic lending practices at INBS, as well as internal considerations within the bank, the report cannot legally be published at this time. Publication of the report may be considered when the Central Bank proceedings are concluded or when any Garda investigation has been finalised (or any proceedings arising from such investigation concluded).
If the Houses of Oireachtas Bill is approved by Oireachtas it will provide the necessary legal framework to allow a formal parliamentary inquiry to be held. The Department will co-operate fully with that inquiry and will forward all information which is legally possible.
