The Consumers' Association, Help the Aged and the TUC have all urged the Government to meet the pensions challenge with radical reforms and take pensions out of the political arena.
Consumers' Association director Sheila McKechnie says: “The Government needs to remove policy decisions on pensions from political interference and work with all stakeholders to build a new pensions structure for all consumers.”
Help the Aged head of public affairs Mervyn Kohler says: “The Governments Green Paper must take major positive steps towards creating the foundations of a more secure future for all.
John Monks, TUC General Secretary, said: “Britain's pensions crisis runs deep, and requires urgent action. The Government must take notice of this wide coalition with so much in common.”
