Report ignored MABS

ONE of the country's best-known money advice services was not consulted by the experts who wrote the Keane Report on mortgage debt, it has emerged.

Yvonne Bogdanovic of MABS told an Oireachtas committee that the service was not contacted by the experts prior to publication of the controversial report. Ms Bogdanovic said "a hungry belly" is the most important issue that MABS deals with.
