To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what is the planned timetable for the development of stakeholder pensions.

We will be making an announcement about the publication of a consultation document on Stakeholder Pensions shortly.
Following consultation we plan to publish more detailed proposals for Stakeholder Pensions alongside our proposals for the long-term framework for pension reform, in the first half of 1998.
