HC Deb 12 December 1991 vol 200 c523W
Mr. Meacher

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will set out the level of the basic state pension, and any earnings-related supplement for a person on the average wage in each European Community country currently, in sterling at current purchasing power parity exchange rates.

Mr. Jack

There are no comparable statistics available on average annual wages in the member states of the European Community. As a consequence, it is not possible to provide the pension comparisons requested by the hon. Member.
