HC Deb 22 November 2000 vol 357 c234W
Mr. Webb

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what the implications are for the level and structure of the state second pension of his recent announcement on(a) the level of the Minimum Income Guarantee and (b) the proposed pensioner credit. [139398]

Mr. Rooker

The recent announcements about the Minimum Income Guarantee and the Pension Credit will not affect the level or the structure of the State Second Pension. However, taken as a whole, the changes we are introducing will result in a boost to the incomes of all pensioners.
