Parliamentary Question No. 194 on Wednesday, 28th November, 2012

To ask the Minister for Justice and Equality if consideration will be given to establishing a new service similar to that of the Civil Legal Aid Service which would provide support to those who require access to the provision under the personal insolvency legislation but who are unable to fund independent support and advice; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

                                                             – Seán Kyne

 REPLY.

I have no plans at present to set up a service along the lines described by the Deputy.

The Personal Insolvency Bill 2012 reflects the standard approach in any insolvency process, that the fees of the personal insolvency practitioner will be paid out of the product of the insolvency.
