Six Fianna Fáil politicians in receipt of an Oireachtas pension on top of their salary are expected to surrender the pension payment today.
It follows the decision yesterday by all Fine Gael and Labour politicians, as well as former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and a number of others in Fianna Fáil, to surrender the payment.
Last night three TDs - Noel Treacy, Michael Woods and Jim McDaid, who is outside the FF Parliamentary Party - were still in receipt of pensions and Oireachtas salaries.
Similar double payments were being made to Senator Terry Leyden as well as MEP's Pat the Cope Gallagher and Liam Aylward.
But all six of these are now expected to cave in at some stage today to the intense pressure over the pension and salary payments issue.
Around Leinster House last night, most conceded that once former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern gave up on his €83,000 a year pension, no-one else would be able to hold out.
The issue remains a threat from the Opposition, with Fine Gael saying it will use Dáil time next week to introduce legislation to end the payments, forcing a vote.
