HC Deb 03 June 1998 vol 313 cc254-5W
Mr. Pond

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security when she will publish the report of the independent Pension Provision Group, chaired by Tom Ross. [44497]

Ms Harman

The Group's Report will be published tomorrow, Thursday 4 June. Copies will be placed in the library. A summary of the Report's findings will be issued to all hon. Members.

The Pension Provision Group was set up last summer as part of the Government's wider Pensions Review, to provide an independent analysis of current and future patterns of pension provision. Their Report provides a clear and authoritative statement which will serve as an important background document for the pensions Green Paper which will be published later in the year.

I am grateful to all members of the Group for the time, commitment and expertise they provided and particularly to Tom Ross for his chairmanship.
