However, the Prime Minister's Special Envoy on Freedom of Religion and Belief, Lord (Tariq) Ahmad, set out the Government's position in Parliament on 25 July. Lord Ahmad said,</p><p>&quot;I note the time and energy that the International Coalition to End Transplant Abuse in China has dedicated to this issue. Officials have reviewed the evidence thoroughly. While the evidence is not incontrovertible, we take these allegations seriously and have consulted the World Health Organization and international partners. The evidence provided disturbing details about the mistreatment of Falun Gong practitioners, and raised worrying questions about China's transplant system. We continue to monitor all available evidence.&quot;</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Department's consultation &quot;Fair Deal – Strengthening pension protection&quot; proposed strengthening the pensions protections that apply when workers are contracted out from their Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) employer. With some exceptions, we proposed that members should have a continued right to membership of the LGPS, in line with central Government Fair Deal policy. We also proposed the introduction of a new way for outsourced staff to participate in the scheme – ‘deemed employer’ status. The consultation closed on 4 April and elicited detailed comments from a variety of stakeholders, which my officials are considering carefully. A formal response will be published in due course.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>In the Yorkshire and Humber area, the Local Government Pension Scheme is split into four funds - the North Yorkshire Pension Fund (administered by North Yorkshire County Council), the West Yorkshire Pension Fund (administered by the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council), the East Riding Pension Fund (administered by East Riding of Yorkshire Council) and the South Yorkshire Pension Fund (administered by the South Yorkshire Pensions Authority). According to data submitted to the Department for the 2017/18 scheme year, membership records for each are as follows:</p><p> </p><p><strong>North Yorkshire Pension fund</strong></p><p>Active members (those in employment actively contributing to the scheme) – 31,194</p><p>Pensioner members (those members receiving a pension from the scheme) – 20,476</p><p>Deferred members (those members who are no longer active but are not yet receiving a pension) – 35,813</p><p>Total membership – 87,483</p><p> </p><p><strong>West Yorkshire Pension Fund</strong></p><p>Active members – 101,794</p><p>Pensioner members – 84,833</p><p>Deferred members – 97,583</p><p>Total membership – 284,210</p><p> </p><p><strong>East Riding Pension Fund</strong></p><p>Active members – 40,051</p><p>Pensioner members – 29,650</p><p>Deferred members – 43,228</p><p>Total membership – 112,929</p><p> </p><p><strong>South Yorkshire Pension Fund</strong></p><p>Active members - 52,412</p><p>Pensioner members - 51,041</p><p>Deferred members - 53, 428</p><p>Total membership – 156,881</p><p> </p><p>Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council (MBC) is a participating employer in the South Yorkshire Pension Fund and its membership numbers will be included in the above figures. However, pension fund data submitted to the Department is not broken down by individual participating employers and we therefore do not hold membership data for Barnsley MBC itself.</p>
