asked the Minister for the Civil Service what would be the estimated cost to the Exchequer of restoring to established civil servants who left the service from 1960 onwards the pension benefits to which they would have been entitled upon transfer had Section 6 of the Principal Civil Service Scheme 1973 been in operation from 1st January 1960 to the date of inception of the scheme; and what he estimates to be the number of such civil servants reckoned to have lost such accrued benefits during such period.
