Written answers (Question to Finance)

I am advised by Permanent TSB that the bank has not to date written to retired executives asking them to consider forgoing a portion of their pensions. However the bank has also advised that it is currently undertaking a fundamental review of its staff pension schemes and will be consulting with the staff and the pension scheme trustees over the coming months on the level of benefits payable from the schemes.
