B&CE Benefit Schemes deputy chief executive John Jory is to be on a panel of speakers at the Labour Party’s annual conference.
Jory will be a panel member of a debate on pensions entitled “Pensions: increasing saving, preserving provision” along with minister for pensions reform Mike O’Brien.
Also on the panel will be NAPF chairman Chris Hitchen and Pensions Policy Institute director Nikki Cleal.
James Gregory, research fellow at Fabian Society, will chair the session and the event will take place on Tuesday 25th September at The Connaught Hotel, Bournemouth, starting at 4pm.
Attendees to the event will be given the opportunity to address questions to the panel when the debate is thrown open to the floor.
Jory says: “Action must be taken to find ways to get more people to save towards their own retirement, rather than relying on state benefits. The group at the centre of this drive are those low to moderate earners who can afford to save, but who currently do not.”
