Dail gold

• In your edition of December 28, you published details of Oireachtas pensions. It hardly made for happy Christmas-time reading for those who are unemployed in this country.

The details really only tell part of the story -- to complete the picture can you not reprint the list together with the years of 'service' clocked up that qualified the happy gang for their lifetime bonanza?

In this context, I note that in a previous edition and reporting on Willie Penrose's resignation as a Minister of State, your reporter mentioned that he would not qualify for a ministerial pension because he had not completed the two years necessary to qualify for one.
