Lords debates Pension Schemes Bill

30 October 2019

Due to the debate on the Early Parliamentary General Election Bill this debate will not take place today.

Members of the Lords, including a former governor of the Pensions Policy Institute and a former president of the Trades Union Congress, will discuss the key principles and purpose of the Pensions Schemes Bill during second reading, on Wednesday 30 October.

Baroness Stedman-Scott (Conservative), Parliamentary Under-Secretary in the Department for Work and Pensions, is expected to open the debate and respond on behalf of the government.
