Written answers (Question to Communications)

There are seven Commercial Semi State Companies under the aegis of my Department: An Post, Bord Gáis Eireann, Bord na Mona, EirGrid, ESB, RTE and TG4. Any issues regarding pension funds for these companies are an operational matter for each company. I understand that the Annual Reports of the companies contain details on the pensions schemes, including assets and liabilities, and are available in the Oireachtas Library.
