The banking inquiry is to seek an extension in delivering its final report.
Deputy Ciaran Lynch, chairman of the Oireachtas inquiry, has confirmed that they will be seeking an extension in the Dail and Seanad. And, the Labour representative said it is now likely to be January 2016 before the final report is delivered.
Speaking to Independent.ie, Deputy Lynch said that the recent report by Senan Allen into the whistleblower claims had an implication on the delivery of the inquiries report, which had been initially due in November.
“It did have operational difficulties for the inquiry,” he said.
“That may require further time for the inquiry to complete it’s work in order to deal with the time that was lost in the committee’s work in accommodating the investigation.”
A source close to committee also said this will have implications upon the inquiry’s budget.
