HC Deb 24 April 1991 vol 189 cc466-7W
Mr. Bendall

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security whether the Government have received a reply from the European Commission to the letter of 9 October 1989 from the United Kingdom permanent representative to the European Communities seeking its views on the position of bridging pensions in the context of directive 86/378/EEC on the implementation of the principle of equal treatment in occupational social security systems.

Miss Widdecombe

A reply was received from the head of directorate general 5 of the European Commission on 17 April 1991. I am arranging for copies of his reply to be placed in the Libraries of both Houses and to be sent to those organisations and individuals who have expressed an interest in the issue.
