HC Deb 15 March 1993 vol 221 c120W
17. Mr. Mike O'Brien

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what further proposals he has to protect occupational pension scheme members from their companies accessing the funds for their own purposes.

Miss Widdecombe

A detailed and wide-ranging review of the legal framework within which occupational pension schemes operate is currently being carried out by an independent committee, the Pensions Law Review Committee. It would be inappropriate for the Government to pre-empt its findings. Decisions on whether any legislative changes are appropriate will be taken in the light of the committee's recommendations.
