HC Deb 08 February 1999 vol 325 c20W
Mr. Hancock

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence which countries' armed forces pension schemes have been studied as part of the UK Armed Forces Pension Scheme Review announced on 23 September 1998. [67127]

Mr. Doug Henderson

In undertaking the Review of the Armed Forces Pension Scheme the MOD will be looking at examples of good practice in other pension schemes. The Review is in its early stages and we have not yet finalised which foreign Armed Forces pension schemes we shall examine. We would, however, expect to consider the schemes of major NATO allies and other Western Armed Forces.
