§ Mr. Fallon
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry (1) what actuarial advice was received on the employee contribution rate to the Post Office Pension Scheme; and if his approval was sought for the rate chosen; 
(2) what discussions he has had with the Post Office about the future of the Post Office Pension Scheme and Post Office Staff Superannuation Scheme. 
§ Mr. Ian McCartney
None. Issues concerning the Post Office pension funds are primarily a matter for Post Office management and the trustees of the funds who include representatives of the workforce.
