Teachers: Pensions

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 5 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families whether he charges independent schools whose employees are members of the teachers' pension scheme a share of (a) the Capita Business Services management fee and (b) his Department's costs for (i) medical and (ii) actuarial services charged to the scheme. (191606)

No employers, including independent schools, meet any of the direct pension administration costs of the teachers' pension scheme. These costs, which include medical and actuarial services, are not charged to the scheme but met separately from the Department's programme budgets.
