§ Mr. Bercow
To ask the President of the Council what assessment he has made of the cost-effectiveness of the Pension Sharing (Excepted Schemes) Order 2001; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Robin Cook
The Pension Sharing (Excepted Schemes) Order 2001 exempts from the pension sharing legislation the holders of the three Great Offices of State. This is in accordance with the provisions of section 27(3)294W of the Welfare Reform and Pensions Act 1999. The order does not impose costs on third parties so no assessment of the cost-effectiveness seems appropriate.
