Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): As the Deputy will be aware, the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality reported to me earlier this year with recommendations in relation to bankruptcy matters, including the bankruptcy term.
I and my officials have now completed consideration of those recommendations and I expect to be in a position to announce further details in relation to this shortly.
