Written answers (Question to Justice)

I can advise the Deputy that there are a total of 132 Personal Insolvency Practitioners (PIPs) currently authorised by the Insolvency Service of Ireland (ISI). Details are set out in the following table.

As I have previously indicated, the number of Practitioners authorised, along with a breakdown of the geographic location of each Practitioner is publically available on the Register of Personal Insolvency Practitioners on the ISI's website, www.isi.gov.ie. I would encourage everyone to consult that page in order to get the latest information in future.
