John Paul Phelan and other Banking inquiry members need to attend every session

jpphelanMembers of the Oireachtas Banking inquiry who miss even one session where a witness is giving evidence can be removed from the committee.

Local Fine Gael TD John Paul Phelan sits on the inquiry that was formally established this week and this measure is part of new rules passed by the Dáil.

It will begin hearings next month, with the first sessions to focus on the context for the banking crash and will hear from experts who’ve written reports on the issue.

The Irish Times reports the inquiry will sit every Wednesday and Thursday, with the frequency to increase after next March.
