I am advised by the Central Bank that the issue as outlined by the Deputy has not been brought to the Bank's attention. However, if there is any relevant information that the Deputy wishes to bring to the direct attention of the Central Bank, the Bank has advised it will consider it in the context of its supervisory activity.
