Legislation to give further powers to a Commission of Investigation into some transactions at the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation has passed the final stage in the Dáil.
Under the Commission of Investigation (Irish Bank Resolution Corporation) Bill 2016, the Commission has been given extra powers to deal with issues of confidentiality of some documents relating to IBRC.
The commission was set up in the wake of the controversy over the sale of the company Siteserv by IBRC in 2012.
It is investigating transactions which resulted in losses to IBRC of at least €10m.
The Government has consulted the Opposition on the changes.
It is being proposed that the commission will look at the sale of Siteserv first and that the commission will be broken into modulars.
Meanwhile, Fianna Fáil's Au Pair Bill was defeated by 96 votes to 43.
The Electoral Amendment Act to allow for selection of members for the Citizens' Assembly to be selected from the Electoral Register was passed by 60 votes to 32.
