Department of Defence
201. To ask the Taoiseach and Minister for Defence if a schedule will be provided of the data sets, databases and file types his Department has shared with the Department of Health since 2000. [17968/21]
Neither the Department of Defence nor the Defence Forces share databases with the Department of Health. The Department of Defence would, on occasion, share information with the Department of Health in relation to the administration of individual retirement pensions for reasons such as the transfer of service to that Department or the application of abatement of pension. Such sharing of information would be specific to an individual scheme member, solely for the purposes of administering individual pension entitlements and would be permissible under the rules of the relevant pension schemes.
A small number of staff members who transferred over the years to the Department of Health would have had their personnel file transferred with them.
As requested, this information is portrayed in the following schedule.
