The Fabian Society and Bright Blue have come together again to make the case for cross-party consensus on ambitious and necessary reforms to pensions policy. Although the outcome of the latest general election has transformed the politics of this country, both organisations still passionately believe that a consensual, cross-party approach to policymaking is likely to lead to the achievement of difficult but desirable reforms in the long-term.
In this latest report, we seek to establish whether there are strong arguments for a new pensions commission and to consider what form any new commission might take. We found broad support for a new commission, including from the current Pensions Minister and Shadow Pensions Minister, and conclude there is sufficient consensus to launch a new pensions commission in 2020.
The research was kindly supported by The People’s Pension.
