On receipt of this information his entitlement to an EU pro rata pension will be examined and he will be notified of the outcome. The position in this regard has been fully explained to him.

He is currently in receipt of a non-contributory pension of €14 per week plus a fuel allowance of €9. He is also in receipt of a British retirement pension.
