Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
The Work and pensions Committee under Anne Bragg mentioned in her report (The Single-tier State Pension: Part 1 of the draft Pensions Bill - Work and Pensions Committee Contents ) issued 4 April 2013
11. At the same time as the White Paper and draft Bill were published in mid-January 2013, the Minister for Pensions wrote to the Chair of the Committee formally asking us to carry out the pre-legislative scrutiny of Part 1 of the draft Bill. We were asked to complete this scrutiny by the start of the Easter parliamentary recess (26 March) to enable the Government to take account of our recommendations and then to introduce the finalised Pensions Bill at the beginning of the 2013-14 parliamentary session in May.
Can you please tell me if you gave Anne Bragg Chair of the Committee any information packs about changes being introduced under the new state pension to help them with their pre-legislative scrutiny of Part 1 of the draft Bill. If you did can you please let me have a copy of any information packs issued or copies of any other correspondence explaining changes under the new state pension starting on 6 April 2016.
