Written answers (Question to Finance)

As the Deputy may be aware, in the context of my Department's review, I have asked NAMA to evaluate their disposal timing and strategy in the context of current market demand and explore the advantages and disadvantages of accelerating its disposal strategy. 

I understand that the NAMA Board is currently reviewing all strategic options and that the Board expects to complete this process in the near future at which point the Board will report its findings to me.
