Suspending the pensions triple lock the ‘right’ call
Christopher Snowdon quoted in the Daily Mail
Julian Jessop quoted in the Daily Express
“I think it was right for them to change the triple lock for this year at least, I wouldn’t have done it necessarily in the way that they have done, I would have retained some form of link to average earnings.
“I would have used some underlying measure to be more consistent with the manifesto.
“As it happens though, the pension will probably come to a similar place as inflation is likely to be between three and four per cent.”
