Memorandum from the Ministry of Defence
ORDER 2003 (S.I. 2003/434)
1. The Ministry of Defence is aware that the Committee
has previously asked for an indication of when the 1983 Service
Pensions Order will be consolidated. The Ministry regrets that
it has not yet been possible to begin work on consolidation as
it has lacked the appropriate resources for this extensive piece
of work. It is intended that a stewardship review be conducted
shortly of the War Pension Scheme and in the light of that work
to take forward the consolidation of the Service Pensions Order.
We would plan to complete this task within the next two years.
