Steve Webb secures Government u-turn on MPs' pensions

I've often said that what Steve Webb, Lib Dem MP for Northavon, doesn't know about pensions isn't worth knoowing. It was Steve who spotted that some women may have lost out because the Government didn't inform those who hadn't paid NI contributions for several years at the end of the 90s/beginning of this decade and was able to ensure that they wouldn't be penalised.

Anyway, this isn't my story to tell, so I'll link to his account of how he ensured that taxpayers' contribution to MPs' pensions has been frozen.

He recognises that this is an interim measure as the MPs' pensions are going to have to be much more intensively reviewed and reformed.
