Gregg McClymont MP, Labour’s Shadow Pensions Minister, responding to the Work and Pensions Committee report on State Pension reform, said:

“It is clear from the substantial work of the committee that there is significant confusion surrounding the pension changes. In pensions clarity is key particularly for those so close to retiring and the Government is failing. Hundreds of thousands of women close to retirement are now set to lose out thanks to this Government’s plans.

“First we were to see the new pension in 2016, then it was “too complicated”, now they have decided it isn’t that tricky after all. The truth is the coalition approach to pensions is in utter disarray.”
