Community Law & Mediation's submission focussed on three main areas:
1. A summary of concerns raised in the previous joint submission;
2. A reiteration of some of the previously mentioned concerns;
3. Further concerns raised having reviewed the Bill.
Community Law & Mediation broadly welcomes the introduction of a Bill which aims to support people in their response to their indebtedness but highlights a number of its concerns in the submission on certain aspects of the Bill.
Community Law & Mediation and Ballymun Community Law Centre together with other interested parties (the group) made the following submission in response to the proposals set out in the Blue Print document dated April 2012.
This short submission examines the proposed changes to the Mortgage Interest Supplement (MIS) outlined in the Social Welfare and Pensions Bill 2012 including concerns that the Bill's proposal actually abolishes the support for some borrowers who would be appropriate candidates for the supplement as they will be completely excluded from accessing the payment.
