Public Sector Pensions

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 1 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what role his Department is playing in the reform of public sector pensions; which Minister has lead departmental responsibility; and if he will make a statement. (96005)

My Department does not have responsibility for the reform of public service pensions.

The Chief Secretary of the Treasury has overall responsibility for signing off the final arrangements for schemes undergoing reform under the principles agreed under the Public Services Forum in October 2005.

The regulation of the local government pension scheme is overseen by the Secretary of State of the Department for Communities and Local Government.
