HC Deb 14 February 1984 vol 54 c160W
Mr. Durant

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many people receive an occupational pension in addition to the state pension; and what percentage of the total number of pensions this represents.

Dr. Boyson

It is estimated that in 1982 nearly 3 million retirement pensioners also received an occupational pension; and that something like 48 per cent. of pensioner families benefited from an occupational pension.
