asked Her Majesty's Government:

By how much the increase in earnings of general practitioners from the National Health Service over the past three years has increased the capital value of their pension entitlements. [HL1964]

Under the general practitioner dynamisation settlement decided by the Secretary of State for 2003-08, it is estimated that the increase in the overall scheme liability has been limited to £1.5 billion, of which approximately £1 billion is attributable to the years 2003-06, within estimated total scheme liabilities of approximately £165 billion.
