Departmental Pensions

Volume 447: debated on Monday 12 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will estimate the pension liability of his Department over the next 30 years. (75276)

I refer the hon. Member to the technical note which was placed in the Library of the House on 2 March 2006, Official Report, columns 388-90W, following an oral statement made by the then Chief Secretary to the Treasury.

As pension liabilities are not estimated for individual Departments, but by the pension scheme, no separate figure is shown for the pension liabilities in respect of Ministry of Defence civil servants.
