To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, with reference to the Answer of 8 October 2019 to Question 294182, how many employers in Dunfermline and West Fife constituency have not met their duties pertaining to the automatic enrolment of employees in a workplace pension scheme.

Automatic enrolment has achieved a quiet revolution through getting employees into the habit of pension saving, and reversing the decline in workplace pension participation in the decade prior to these reforms. Since automatic enrolment started in 2012 participation rates have been transformed with 87% of eligible employees saving into a workplace pension in 2018, up from 55% in 2012.

The Department does not hold data for individual constituencies in relation to non-compliance of employers.

The Pensions Regulator’s data on automatic enrolment declaration of compliance by constituency is available via the following weblink: https://www.thepensionsregulator.gov.uk/en/document-library/research-and-analysis/data-requests
