- 2014 National Retired Members Conference
- 19 June 2014
- Carried as Amended
Conference notes that the proposals in the Government’s Pensions Bill – self-praised by them as a way of making the state pensions system clearer and fairer – do neither of these things, do nothing for existing pensioners, and would result in a multi-tier pensions system so complicated that not only pensioners but probably even those administering it would struggle to understand it. The one clear thing is (as the Government’s own figures show) that it is a way of saving money, as by 2050 the bill would be less than today’s.
Conference calls on the National Retired Members’ Committee to help regions and branches to support the National Pensioners’ Convention in publicising the shortfalls of the Bill and campaigning amongst MPs to stop it (or repeal it if passed into law before Conference).
