To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, if he will make an estimate of the potential cost to providers of requiring all private pension payments, including to those pensioners whose contributions were paid prior to 1997, to increase in line with the retail price index.

The Department for Work and Pensions does not currently hold the information to answer either of these questions. The Department is not able to provide this information or make an estimate of potential costs as the information requested is not collated centrally and could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
