HC Deb 16 January 1992 vol 201 c636W
Mr. Alfred Morris

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will make a statement on the protocol of the Maastricht agreement which reverses much of the right to equal treatment in occupational pensions that was established by the Barber decision.

Miss Widdecombe

The protocol on article 119 of the treaty of Rome clarifies the retrospective effect of the Barber judgment. The implications of the protocol are still being discussed.
