§ Mr. Whitney
I regret that information is not available in the form requested. The following estimates, derived from the family expenditure survey, show the number of occupational pensions in payment in Great Britain in 1982. 731W They include pensions for widows and dependants and those awarded in early retirement. They do not include pensions which people have arranged for themselves. We are not aware of any similar estimates for other member states.
Estimated number of pensions in payment of 1982 (millions) Payable to people under pension age 1.0 Payable to people over pension age 3.0 TOTAL 4.0 per cent. Pensions in payment as a percentage of total estimated Great Britain population in 1982 7.4
