HL Deb 02 March 1998 vol 586 c128WA
Baroness Castle of Blackburn

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many local authorities, trade unions and other non-profit making organisations have responded to their consultative document on stakeholders' pensions by submitting outline plans for their participation in the scheme. [HL640]

Baroness Hollis of Heigham

One local authority organisation and seven trade union organisations outlined plans for their participation in stakeholder pensions in their responses to the consultation document. The main purpose of the consultation paper was to seek views on a range of detailed, technical issues on the design of the new pensions. Almost 200 responses have been received in total. Of these two are from local authority organisations, 11 from trade union organisations, and 12 from registered charities and voluntary organisations. The status of other organisations cannot in all cases be reliably identified from their responses.
