§ Mr. Teddy Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State For Defence what steps he is taking to ensure that employees of AWRE are provided with the same opportunities to remain within the UKAEA pension scheme after privatisation as former AWRE employees who transferred to the employment of British Nuclear Fuels Ltd. and Amersham plc; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Kenneth Carlisle
The question of pension arrangements for members of the UKAEA principal non-industrial superannuation scheme (PNISS) employed at AWRE after contractorisation is under consideration.
I have given assurances that nobody will suffer detriment to their pension arrangements as a result of contractorisation.
