§ Helen Jones
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will allow BNFL employees who transfer to wholly owned subsidiaries of that company to remain in the Principle non-industrial superannuation scheme. 
§ Mr. Geoffrey Robinson
[holding answer 21 July 1997]: No. Primary legislation would be required to allow employees of wholly-owned subsidiaries of BNFL to remain in the PNISS pension scheme. There are currently no plans for such legislation. BNFL has set up and operates its own group pension scheme which closely mirrors the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority's principal non-industrial superannuation scheme.
