I thank the Minister for his answer.  He outlined that there was no legal requirement on his Department.  Equally, however, in the past, there have been situations, such as with the Presbyterian Mutual Society, where there has been no legal obligation, but there has been a moral obligation on the Executive to act.  Does he not accept that, in this case, because of the inequalities that exist in our current Civil Service, there is such a moral obligation?
