HC Deb 07 July 1992 vol 211 c94W
Mr. Alex Carlile

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department if it will be possible for judges to buy additional years under the new judicial pension provisions.

Mr. John M. Taylor

The Judicial Pensions and Retirement Bill[Lords], which has recently completed its Committee stage in another place, contains a regulation-making power to enable provision to be made to entitle qualifying judicial officers to make voluntary contribution towards the cost of provision of additional benefits under the new judicial pension scheme.
