475. Deputy Pearse Doherty asked the Minister for Justice and Equality her plans to change the eligibility criteria for personal insolvency arrangements, as regards public office holders and members of An Garda Síochána. [19861/15]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): The Deputy will be aware that under the Personal Insolvency Act 2012, the eligibility criteria for entering a personal insolvency arrangement are the same for public office holders and Gardaí as they are for any other citizen.
I can confirm that I do not propose to change that position.
