Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government (Mr. Roche): Information on Dick Roche  Zoom on Dick Roche  In circular S.12/2005 of 5 August 2005, my Department issued comprehensive guidance to local authorities about a revised method of calculating pension entitlements for non-officer grades in local authorities whose pensions are integrated with social welfare benefits. Local authorities were requested to communicate with all persons who are in receipt of such integrated pensions from the local authorities and who stand to benefit from the new arrangements. Local authorities have been responsible for implementing these new arrangements on a timely basis. My Department would not have details or numbers of beneficiaries by local authorities.
