Mr. J. Enoch Powell
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland by whom the employee's superannuation contributions are borne in the water service.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
Employees in the water service of the Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland are covered for superannuation purposes by the principal Civil Service pension scheme (Northern Ireland). The PCSPS (NI) is not funded and all the benefits are paid out of monies provided by Parliament through the Vote for superannuation.
