Request

Under the Freedom of Information act request, I would like to know how many whistleblowing reports The Pensions Regulator received over the past three years.

I would like this information broken down by year, with the year end 31 March. I am referring to whistleblowing in general about pension schemes – rather than the regulator and its staff. I am interested in non-statutory whistleblowing.

Response

I can confirm that we hold the information you have requested. This table shows all incoming whistleblower requests. Incoming requests are ones made to the regulator.
