Public Service Superannuation (Age of Retirement) Bill 2018: [Seanad Bill amended by the Dáil] Report and Final Stages
I welcome the amendment tabled by Deputy Cowen in the other House. How many people is it envisaged would be caught in this trap, and how much will it cost the Exchequer? Furthermore, is it the case that if this legislation, when it was brought forward first, were rushed through the House, no one would be caught in this trap? If so, could the date not be the date on which the Bill was initiated? Then I do not think anyone would lose out from the Bill.
