HC Deb 20 November 2000 vol 357 c66W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what increases in the basic pension for 2001–02 and 2002–03 would result if the 0.3 per cent. reduction in employers" contribution rates was cancelled and the money spent on the basic pension. [138351]

Mr. Rooker

[holding answer 15 November 2000]: The 0.3 per cent. reduction relates to the climate change levy and therefore has no relevance to Social Security policy issues.
