    The inquiry into write-offs on Irish Bank Resolution Corporation (IBRC) asset sales will take “several years” to complete even if granted extra legal powers, the judge heading the investigation has said.

    The Taoiseach said the commission would also seek an “extension of time” for the completion of its work.
    “I do not expect that the inquiry will collapse,” the Taoiseach told thE Dail




    Seems the Act was lacking in powers it granted.


    He said the 2004 Act establishing commissions of inquiry had not provided any mechanism for seeking a direction from the High Court on such matters. He referred to an earlier Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse 2000 which had specific powers to seek such directions.

    Enda Kenny has said today that a "full blown" public enquiry into IBRC running for at least 13 years is needed.

    Kick...Can..road......

    Can I suggest that he inaugurates the public enquiry into ISIF/the NTMA right now, to save dragging things out another 5 years ?

    Perhaps in future we can quit messing around and schedule public enquiries at the same time as we start new financial 'public service' entities, as part of the start up process.
