Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Pay of Widows in Civil Service.

48.

asked the Minister for Finance if, in view of the fact that a widow with dependants who is employed in the Civil Service is paid the same as a single man whereas a widower without dependants receives the higher married scale, he will take steps to rectify this anomaly and to ensure that widows receive the higher married scale.

I would refer the Deputy to the reply given to a question on this subject on 1st May last.
