Volume 447: debated on Thursday 8 June 2006

26. To ask the Minister for Women and Equality what discussions she has had with colleagues in the Department for Work and Pensions on recognition for women's caring role in pension arrangements. (75717)

I have had regular meetings with colleagues in the Department for Work and Pensions throughout the development of the pension reforms. I am pleased that the reforms in the White Paper: “Security in Retirement: Towards a new Pension System” will deliver fairer pension outcomes for women and carers.
