Bankers hauled before Noonan
Finance wants variable rates cut
Finance minister Michael Noonan will haul the main banks before him this week and tell them to slash their standard variable mortgage rates or face government action to force them down.
The chief executives of AIB, Bank of Ireland, Permanent TSB and Ulster Bank will hold a series of meetings with Noonan, beginning on Tuesday, to discuss the findings of a Central Bank report on mortgage pricing, The Sunday Business Post has learned.
