Irish Government does have detailed documents around the bank guarantee scheme after all…

Tue 9 July 2013, 11:06am

One for the archives, I guess. The Journal have had some information given them by Fianna Fail, which seems to run contrary to the Taoiseach’s claim that there are no documents in his possession which explain the rationale of the bank guarantee scheme that was rushed through the Dail in September 2008…

Of the 146 documents 106 have been withheld, 31 have been released in full and four have been partially released. Many of the records are withheld under section 19 of the Freedom of Information Act which concerns the confidentiality of government records.

Descriptions of the withheld documents include ‘minutes of Government meeting’, a ‘memorandum for government’, a ‘draft guarantee bill’ and notes concerning discussions on 30 September 2008  -  the date the Fianna Fáil-led government made the decision to guarantee the banks.

Hmmmm…
