HC Deb 13 November 1979 vol 973 c571W
Mr. Scott

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what representations he has received about the impact of inflation on early leavers in private occupational pension schemes; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Chalker

The question of how to protect the rights and expectations of those who change or leave jobs is being considered by the Occupational Pensions Board and it has received many hundreds of submissions from individuals and organisations. The Board's study of this complex issue commenced in 1978 and it is expected that it will take up to three years to complete.
