The committee which is being chaired by Labour’s Ciarán Lynch
The Banking Inquiry committee is to set up a group of technical experts to help it prepare terms of reference in time for the opening of the new Dáil term in September.
Public hearings will not begin until next year but it is understood the committee wants the inquiry to complete its work by November 2015.
The committee, which is being chaired by Labour’s Ciarán Lynch met for two hours this morning.
It is working on the areas and timespan which the inquiry will investigate and intends to have an plan ready for the new Dáil term.
It comes after controversy over the make-up of the banking inquiry and in particular the Government’s majority on it.
Independent TD Stephen Donnelly resigned from the inquiry after the Government added Fine Gael Senator Michael D’Arcy and Labour Senator Susan O’Keeffe to the committee.
