Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty TD has welcomed the decision by the Oireachtas Finance Committee to write to the Department of Finance urging them to cooperate fully with the Assembly’s inquiry into the sale of the northern loan book of NAMA. Deputy Doherty also welcomed the decision to write to NAMA asking it to attend an oral hearing of the Assembly investigation.
Deputy Doherty said:
“In a private session today and on the back of a letter from Daithí McKay MLA, chair of the Assembly Finance and Personnel Committee, I proposed that the Committee write to the Department of Finance asking them to fully cooperate and to NAMA, requesting they attend an oral hearing of the Committee as it has been requested to do so. I am delighted the Committee agreed and hope this action aids the investigation.”
