§ Mr. Duncan Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what is the publication date for the Government Actuary Department's report on upgrading the SERPS rebate; and what are the terms of reference for the report. 
§ Mr. Denham
I refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave my hon. Friend the Member for Vauxhall (Kate Hoey) on Friday 16 January 1998,Official Report, column 344, which explained that a copy of the report I have received from the Government Actuary has been placed in the Library of both Houses. Its terms of reference are clearly set out in the introduction of the report.
Orders to set new rebate levels from April 1999, with an accompanying report from the Government Actuary, will be brought before both Houses shortly.
