While all of us have every sympathy with what the hon. Member for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey is saying, it would not always be the case in terms of discussing the prospect of employment that the prospective employee would not want to discuss pensions. There will be some situations where a pension will be part of a whole package of measures making up that person’s employment. Therefore it would not be an advisable road to go down to say that there is no discussion of these things in advance of being offered a contract.
