§ 25. Mr. Phillip Oppenheim
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what means he is considering to encourage the take-up of occupational pensions.
§ Dr. Boyson
Around half of the working population is building up rights to pensions as members of occupational pension schemes. The inquiry into provision for retirement, in looking at the balance between state and occupational pensions, will consider whether more need be done to encourage the spread of occupational provision.
