Ceisteanna (144)

Paul Connaughton

Ceist:

155 Deputy Paul Connaughton asked the Minister for Health and Children if she is satisfied that elements contained in the Croke Park Agreement militate unfairly against long serving members of the nursing profession who may retire but now find that they will be unfairly financially penalised because of the cost neutral factor contained in that agreement; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [47159/10]

I am not aware of the cost neutral factor contained in the Croke Park Agreement to which the Deputy refers, nor am I aware of elements of the Croke Park Agreement that impact specifically on retiring members of the nursing profession.
