§ Mr. Boswell
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what research she has conducted on whether former local authority employees transferring employment under the Acquired Rights Directive are likely to receive their full anticipated retirement pension in cases of one or more subsequent transfers of employment. 
§ Mr. Ian McCartney
None. The coverage of occupational pensions is, however, one of the issues that the Government have under active consideration in the context of their intended revision of the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 1981 (the TUPE Regulations) which implement the Acquired Rights Directive in the UK.
