|21 Feb 2018, 12:39 p.m.||Carillion: Insolvency||Rebecca Long Bailey|
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, pursuant to the oral contribution of the Minister for the Cabinet Office of 15 January 2018, on Carillion, if she will place the annual reports of the 14 pension schemes forming part of the Carillion Group in the Library.
Answer (Guy Opperman)
Government Ministers do not have access to the annual reports of the pension schemes forming part of the Carillion Group. This would be a matter for the pension schemes’ trustees.
The trustees of defined benefit schemes are required to let members know that the scheme’s annual report and accounts are available on request within seven months of the end of each scheme year. The report must include a copy of the audited accounts and auditor's statement, details of the trustees and how they are appointed and removed, an investment report, including how the investments have performed and the actuary's certification of the adequacy of the schedule of contributions.
