Fianna Fáil Senator Marc MacSharry, has accused the Government of failing to take the initiative in tackling the mortgage crisis.

The Sligo/North Leitrim representative commented that, six months after receiving the Keane Report, many of its key recommendations have not been implemented by the Government and are not even in the process of being put in place.

MacSharry said: “The Government promised, very publicly, that it would act on the recommendations of the Keane Report, but they simply have not.”

He said that people cannot wait any longer for action and concluded by saying: “The Government seems completely unwilling to tackle this issue with the urgency it has shown to other concerns.”
