House of Lords: Pensions

Volume 708: debated on Monday 2 March 2009


Asked by

To ask the Chairman of Committees whether, in view of the decision of the Sub-Committee on Lords' Interests in 2006 (Priv 2006–07/1), the debate on 19 July 2007 (Official Report, House of Lords, cols. 402–18) and recent events, he will re-submit to the Committee for Privileges the suggestion that members of the House of Lords in receipt of a European Union pension should declare that interest in debates about European Union matters. [HL1753]

No. However, if the noble Lord writes to me with a specific proposal, and explaining why he thinks the committee should now revisit its previous decisions on this matter, I shall be happy to put his letter before the committee.
