Danny Alexander sometimes attracts a bit of criticism from party members for the number of times he’s done media appearances where he’s ended up spending much of the time defending Coalition policies which are predominantly Conservative. So good to see him out in the TV studios this morning fronting up a policy that the Liberal Democrats have strongly pushed for – and thereby emphasising the Liberal Democrat contribution:
Danny Alexander has confirmed that the Coalition’s single tier pension policy will be unveiled tomorrow.
Ministers will outline plans to introduce a single payment of around £144 to everyone who has worked at least ten years, in the biggest pension shake-up for decades.
Speaking to Sky News, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury said the changes would fix “some of the big problems” in the current system.
