HC Deb 16 September 2004 vol 424 c1747WS
Mr. Drew

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what the average time taken to process pension payments through the use of the Post Office card account is. [188609]

Mr. Pond

Information is not available in the format requested.

Payments made through the Post Office card account use the same process as all payments direct to bank accounts. Payments are sent to BACS Ltd. in advance of the relevant three-day payment cycle. The process is designed to ensure that a payment is available for collection; in the case of the Post Office card account, by 9.00 am on the date it is due.
