asked the Minister for Transport and Power the reason for the long delay in coming to a decision on the question of granting an increase in their pensions to certain categories of CIE pensioners.

As regards pensioners who retire after 1st April, 1963, I would refer the Deputy to my reply of 19th June, 1968. Consideration of the position of pensioners who retired before that date is almost completed and I hope to be able to make a statement in the matter at an early date.
