Responsibility for the application in the health boards of the abatement of pension provisions as set out in the local government superannuation scheme which applies in this instance is a matter for each health board. My Department has therefore asked the regional chief executive of the Eastern Regional Health Authority to investigate the matter raised by the Deputy and to reply to him directly.

Question No. 192 answered with QuestionNo. 189.
