The person (details supplied) was not an employee of my Department at the time this service was given. The person was an employee of one of bodies under the aegis of my Department who determined the terms and conditions of employment, including the pension scheme. It is a matter for the body concerned (Fáilte Ireland) to confirm the employee's service including the pensionability of that service for transfer purposes.

I have asked the body concerned to contact the Deputy with the information requested. If you do not receive a reply within ten working days, please contact my private office.

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 42A
