Question for Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

UIN 8761, tabled on 27 May 2021

The mineworkers’ pension scheme is not administered by the Government but by the Scheme Trustees. The Department does not, therefore, hold this information and such requests should be made to the Trustees.

However, I understand that the Trustees have already provided some information on scheme membership, including post codes, to the House of Commons Library. The Library should therefore be able to provide the information sought for existing scheme members.

Named day
Named day questions only occur in the House of Commons. The MP tabling the question specifies the date on which they should receive an answer. MPs may not table more than five named day questions on a single day.
