asked the Prime Minister in what circumstances Her Majesty's Government decide to base pension entitlement on levels of salary other than those actually in payment at or in the period before the date of retirement; for which categories of public servants this was done in 1983–84 and succeeding years; and if she will make a statement.

Since April 1983 the only group of public servants who have had their pensions based on salaries other than those actually in payment at or in the period before the date of retirement are those whose pensions were affected by the 1983–84 TSRB award. Ministers are considering the 1985 report of the Top Salaries Review Body and I expect to be able to announce the Government's decisions, including the implications for pensions, in the near future.
