Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore said they wanted to see more progress in dealing with mortgage distress when they launched a progress report on their two years in Government.

Mr Kenny said the Coalition’s main goal in the next year was to successfully exit the IMF-EU bailout programme, while continuing to reduce borrowing and debt to “sustainable” levels.

“We’ll do more to accelerate a solution to the mortgage crisis so that as many individuals and families as possible are offered sustainable solutions,” Mr Kenny said.

“What we want here is a process that is transparent and fair,” he said.

Mr Kenny said he expected the doors of the personal insolvency agency to be open for business by early summer.
