Anglo Irish Bank – a public authority under EIR

Gavin Sheridan  over at The Story.ie has posted this interesting article.

Similar in nature to the earlier NAMA decision, the Commissioner for Environmental Information today ruled that Anglo Irish Bank (now known as the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation) is a public authority for the purposes of the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR). It relates to requests I submitted to the Bank in February 2010, which the bank had refused on the basis that it claimed it was not a public authority within the meaning of the Regulations.

The decision means that the Bank is now open to requests under the Regulations, allowing citizens to submit requests for environmental information.

IT DOES NOT MEAN ANGLO IS SUBJECT TO FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUESTS

Press release from the Green Party today to capitalise on the Creighton-O’Flynn-Anglo Ten donations-Fine Gael issue. Opening line;

The Green Party Leader and Environment Minister John Gormley has said that he intends to change the way politics is funded…

A quick look back into The Irish Times archive for their coverage of the announcement of John Gormley’s selection as environment minister. July 7 2007;

The newly elected leader of the Green Party, Minister for the Environment John Gormley, said yesterday he wants changes in the ways political parties are funded.

That was 1,103 days ago. Or 157 weeks. 26,472 hours. 95,299,200 seconds.

Tick-tock tick-tock.
