transparently in that regard.

(12)     The trustees or managers of an occupational pension scheme and
the managers of a personal pension scheme shall comply with any
reasonable request for information relating to any of the matters
mentioned in subsection (15) where such request is made by or on
behalf of one or more of the beneficiaries, or any other persons of a
prescribed description which the Secretary of State may specify in
regulations under this section, or by a relevant independent
governance committee.

(13)     The trustees or managers of an occupational pension scheme and
the managers of a personal pension scheme shall comply with any
reasonable request by or on behalf of any of the persons specified in
subsection (12) for information relating to the reasons for the
manner in which they have exercised or are proposing to exercise a
discretion in relation to any of the matters mentioned in subsection
(15).

(14)     The trustees or managers of an occupational pension scheme and
the managers of a personal pension scheme shall take all reasonable
steps to ensure that all persons to whom they have delegated any
investment functions mentioned in subsection (15) comply with
any reasonable requests by or on behalf of any of the persons
specified in subsection (12) for information relating to the
performance of such delegated functions.

(15)     The matters mentioned in this subsection that are referred to in
subsections (11) to (14) are—

(a)   the selection, retention and realisation of investments,

available in easily comprehensible form to the person
making the request and that person has been advised
accordingly,

(c)   the trustees or managers (or, where subsection (14) applies,

providing the information would be disproportionate,
having regard to (among other matters)—

best interests of the beneficiaries as a whole,

(ii)   in the case of a personal pension scheme, the best
interests of the beneficiaries of all personal pension
schemes of the same provider as a whole, and

(iii)   whether the requested information is relevant to
those best interests,

and have stated that to be their view, have explained their reasons, and have given their best estimate of such costs to the person making the request.

(17)     Subsection (16)(c) above shall not apply unless where a relevant
independent governance committee, having considered such view
and reasons—

(a)   notifies the trustees or managers that it does not agree that
their estimated costs would be disproportionate, or

(b)   there are commercial considerations, including (without
limitation) confidentiality constraints, that, for so long as
such considerations subsist, would make it either unlawful
or not in the best interests of the relevant beneficiaries for
the requested information to be provided,

and the trustees or managers (or, where subsection (14) applies, the
relevant delegate) have stated that to be their view and, so far as
practicable, have indicated the nature of the relevant considerations
to the person making the request.

(18)     Subsection (17) shall not apply to the extent (if any) that it is
reasonably practicable for any part of the requested information to
be provided, whether in full or in a redacted or summary form,
without prejudice to such commercial consideration.

(19)     The provision of information under subsections (11) to (15) shall be
made without any—

(a)   cost or charge to the beneficiary or any other prescribed
person making the request, or

(b)   restrictions on the use or dissemination of the information
by the recipient.

(20)     The Secretary of State may make regulations with a view to
ensuring that the information disclosed under subsections (11) to
(15) is provided in a timely and comprehensible manner.

(21)     For the purposes of subsections (11) to (20)—

“beneficiaries” means the persons for whose benefit
investments are being, will be or may be applied for the
purposes of a pension scheme, whatever the particular form
of ownership under which such investments are held for the
