HC Deb 15 March 1993 vol 221 cc121-2W
29. Mr. Madel

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what is the latest information known to his Department concerning efforts being made to recover the missing Maxwell pension funds; and if he will make a statement.

Miss Widdecombe

The Department's Maxwell pensions unit and Sir John Cuckney continue to assist the liquidators and the pension scheme trustees in their attempts to restore assets to the schemes. Meanwhile, the trustees of the Maxwell Pensioners Trust announced last week that the trust would be making grants to pension schemes when the Government's emergency funding is exhausted to keep pensions in payment for a further period while asset recovery continues.
