§ Mr. Michael Brown
asked the Minister for the Civil Service how many representations have been received from individuals and organisations about the Scott report on public service pensions; and of those how many favoured the abolition of the existing arrangements for index-linking these pensions.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
Since the publication of the Scott report on 5 February, my Department has received about 150 letters on index-linked pensions. About half of these favoured changes in the existing arrangements.
