682. Deputy Richard Bruton asked the Minister for Justice if pension restoration to all ranks of An Garda Síochána has been completed; and if not, if there are plans to restore remaining reductions. [50441/21]


Minister for Justice (Deputy Heather Humphreys): I can inform the Deputy that pension restoration has taken place on an annual phased basis commencing in 2016, with the final restoration for a relatively small final group of pensioners due on 1 st December 2021. This payment will complete the restoration of all pension reductions for retired members of An Garda Síochána.
