Volume 453: debated on Monday 27 November 2006

To ask the Leader of the House what the average annual ministerial pension payment for a former Government Minister was in (a) 1985, (b) 1995 and (c) 2005. (100606)

Pensions for Ministers and former Ministers comprise benefits from the Parliamentary Contributory Pension Fund (PCPF) plus a supplementary pension in respect of service as a Minister. On retirement, the PCPF pension and the supplementary pension are amalgamated and paid as a single pension. As a result the information requested is only available at disproportionate cost.
