Written answers (Question to Justice)

The Insolvency Service of Ireland (ISI) is an independent statutory body which was established on 1 March, 2013, under the Personal Insolvency Act 2012.

I have made enquiries with the Insolvency Service of Ireland and they have informed me that in relation to cases that have been dealt with by the ISI, no families lost their homes as a result of petitions for bankruptcy by the Revenue Commissioners in years 2015 to 2018 and to date in 2019.
