Department of Public Expenditure and Reform
152. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if his Department has received an application for approval of an increase in pension for retired ESB pensioners; if so, when the application was received; when a decision will be made on the application; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [3324/20]
Applications for increases in pension for retired ESB pensioners are normally submitted to the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment for his approval and subsequently sent to this Department for my consent. I can confirm that this Department has not recently received an application for approval of an increase in pension for retired ESB pensioners.
