HC Deb 02 May 1978 vol 949 c31W
Mr. Stephen Ross

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he will publish the appropriate regulations giving effect to recently agreed improvements to pension schemes for full and part-time government officers; and what is the reason for the delay.

Mr. Shore

Steady, albeit regrettably slow, progress is being made with the drafting of the necessary regulations. I am considering what, if anything, can be done to speed things up and shall be meeting the employers and TUC shortly to discuss the problem.
