The points made by the hon. Member for Eastbourne are ones that we, the Liberal Democrats, would wish to associate ourselves with. There is clearly a question about employer contribution and how it can be maintained at the 3 per cent. level that has been promised, and that is the expectation. An amendment such as this—which makes it clear that there would have to be further primary legislation if that were to be changed—would give the appropriate reassurance for which employers would certainly be looking.
