Does my hon. Friend agree that these pension entitlements are not a benefit or a privilege but a contract, and they should be honoured?

Mr. Hendry is quite correct - the pension is an earned entitlement not a benefit or welfare payment and is the result of an unwritten contract, but contract nevertheless, between the individual and government.
