1979-1987 : Mr Major’s Written Parliamentary Answer on Occupational Pensions

Below is the text of Mr Major's written Parliamentary Answer on Occupational Pensions on 29th April 1986.


Mr. Clay Asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects to publish regulations on disclosure of information on occupational pensions; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Major The consultative proposals for these regulations produced a very large and detailed response from a wide variety of organisations and individuals and we have tried to take full account of the many different views expressed in that response. In preparing the regulations, we have continued to consult regularly with representatives of the relevant professional bodies as well as representatives of and advisers to occupational pension schemes and we expect to be in a position to publish them very soon.
