I propose to take Questions Nos. 86 to 88, inclusive, together.

The database referenced by the Deputy is operated by Insurance Ireland, a representative trade body for the insurance sector.

As Minister for Finance, I am responsible for the development of the legal framework governing financial regulation and therefore have no role in the operation of this database referred to in the parliamentary questions.  As a result, I am not in a position to provide the information being sought by the Deputy.

Details of the database can be accessed at: http://www.insuranceireland.eu/member-services/shared-services or at: http://www.inslink.ie/.
