The pension radar service - volume 2
Hi! This is the second pension radar BeeLine - many thanks to all of you who wrote in to say you find the idea useful.
This week I've found some interesting written exchanges between Steve Webb, the Lib Dems pension spokesman, and Malcolm Wicks, the current pensions minister, on the thorny subject of contracting-out. Some of the information provided is pretty interesting.
Also, another transcript of some exchanges in the House of Lords on the tricky subject of just how the new post A-Day trustee rules will be working (or otherwise) in practice.
Again, on the subject of the practicalities of being a pension scheme trustee, the NAPF have just put out a press release announcing their new guide that will help trustees pull their weight.
While I was surfing this week I also found another press release, this time from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (the ACCA), with some more news on whistleblowing and the penalties for those who turn a blind eye in future. All strong stuff!
I hope you find something here to interest you - I would think the contracting-out debate will...
