Call for Nama ban on developers - The Irish Times - Tue, Sep 15, 2009
The State's largest housing charity today demanded top builders and developers be kept out of consultations on the State’s bad bank scheme.
The Respond group said representatives from the Construction Industry Federation (CIF) should be barred from Nama discussions because they would only promote their members’ interests.
“We have witnessed a massive push in the past week by certain developers and the CIF to influence politicians with regard to the legislation establishing Nama,” Respond spokeswoman Aoife Walsh said.
"In the role the CIF and its members played in the current economic crisis, this is simply unacceptable.”
