Conservative Party manifesto 2017 – more powers for the Pensions Regulator?
- 19 May 2017
The Conservative Party issued its general election manifesto yesterday, 18 May 2017. Tucked away under a section called “New Rules for a Changing Economy” are two short paragraphs dealing with the protection of private pensions.
These state the Conservative Party’s view that the current powers of the Pensions Regulator and the Pension Protection Fund are insufficient and its intention to tighten regulation and increase the sanctions for those found mismanaging pension schemes.
