Rachel Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Pensions Minister, commenting on the Government’s announcement on pensions today, said: 

“These are plans for new pensioners in the future. Vague promises of jam tomorrow don’t do anything for pensioners today. With higher VAT and fuel prices rising, they want help now. 

“Labour supports a fairer, simple state pension system. But we want to see the detail - who will be better off and who worse off under this system?”
