§ Mr. Meacher
asked the Prime Minister what changes she plans to make in and relating to the principal Civil Service pension scheme consequent upon enactment of the Social Security Bill.
§ The Prime Minister
The principal civil service pension scheme (PCSPS) will be amended as necessary to comply with the requirements introduced by the Bill that relate to occupational pension schemes. These requirements will not apply to schemes until 1 April 1988, and the detailed implications for the PCSPS will be considered in due course in consultation with the Civil Service trade unions.
