92. Mr. Yates asked the Minister for Finance the Government's policy in relation to the future of the ACC Bank.
Minister for Finance (Mr. B. Ahern) Bertie Ahern
Minister for Finance (Mr. B. Ahern): The Government's proposals in relation to ACC Bank and its role in a future third force in banking are set out in the Programme for a Partnership Government 1993-1997. There have been preliminary contacts in the matter with ACC Bank and ICC Bank. A timetable for the development of the third banking force has not yet been set.
The Deputy will have to appreciate that the in-depth analyses are only at the initial stages and that this is clearly a matter that cannot be rushed and considerable time will be needed to examine all the implications.
