Lord Bruce of Donington
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What are the annual pensions paid to retiring members of the European Commission as appropriate to the year on which retirement took place, expressed in pounds sterling at current rates of exchange and distinguishing between those who retired as ordinary members since 1977 and those who were Vice-Presidents on retirement.
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Ministry of Defence (Lord Henley)
The level of pension paid to a former European Commissioner or Vice-President would depend upon individual personal circumstances. Details are not available to us. Actual payments are a matter for the Commission.
