To ask Her Majesty's Government what progress has been made in assisting the government of Zimbabwe to pay any arrears owing to former members of Her Majesty's Overseas Civil Service.
The UK does not have any legal responsibility for pension payments to former Southern Rhodesian civil servants. Responsibility sits with the Government of Zimbabwe, who confirmed this in writing in 2016. However, the UK regularly presses the Zimbabwean government to honour its obligation to pay the arrears. Eligible UK-appointed retired civil servants have been paid regularly from the Central African Pension Fund.
