Written Answers. - Local Authority Retirement Scheme.

  344. Mr. Allen asked the Minister for the Environment and Local Government the terms of the retirement scheme which he has agreed for local authority members; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [17750/02]

  Minister for the Environment and Local Government (Mr. Cullen): Full details of the scheme of retirement gratuities for local authority members are set out in the Local Authority Members (Gratuity) Regulations, 2002. The regulations, together with summaries for local authorities and members, were circulated to local authorities in June for distribution to all members.

  I am arranging for a copy of this documentation to be sent to the Deputy.
