Details of the lump sums, pensions and termination pay for individual TDs and senators will no longer be made public following a decision by Oireachtas authorities.

The payments have been published by Leinster House for more than a decade without issue.

However, the Oireachtas has now decided that continued publication of the data would be a breach of the privacy of the former politicians.
