"The Government has broken a legal deadline to announce any changes to the state pension age, leaving millions of voters in the dark about their future pension pots.

Following a year-long independent review by John Cridland, former director-general of the Confederation of British Industry, and a second independent
report from the Government Actuary's Department, Theresa May’s government was expected to inform Parliament of its plans.

The Government was legally mandated to review the state pension age – currently 65 for men and women – by 7 May, as set out in the
2014 Pensions Act."

Really good to know as a Pensioner that the much lauded, fabled, "Triple Lock" is being upheld, OR?? ignored by this potential Conservative supremo?

The present on-going froth and bubbles about some sort of what was it A yes I recall a General Election, will allow the Present Government to slip in under the radar a plan to reduce the "Triple Lock" to a free for all for the Government to save Squillions of £££ in payment of pensions to the un-washed masses.

Good time for the release of seriously bad news ???
Re: Diane Abbot:

You're all being unfair to her.

She was looking at the wrong piece of paper - pulled out her expenses claim by mistake.
It's the independant; what sort of report would you expect.

Actually, I think this comes under the Purdah rules where the government aren't allowed to release major statments in the run up to the election.
