Ceisteanna (35)

Clare Daly

Ceist:

35. Deputy Clare Daly asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the basis on which cuts to public sector pensions starting at €32,500 in Croke Park II, could be imposed on people who retired under defined terms in Croke Park 1 and signed a contract based on those terms. [17742/13]

As the Deputy will be aware the LRC noted the Government’s intention to require public service pensioners to make a further contribution to the consolidation measures in conjunction with the contribution being sought from serving staff, thereby ensuring an element of burden sharing from higher paid public service pensioners. These matters now fall to be considered further in the light of the ICTU decision on the LRC proposals.

Questions Nos. 36 and 37 answered with Question No. 31.
