On pensions reform, will the Secretary of State assure us that nothing will distract him from pursuing that vital agenda? On the public sector pensions deal, at a time when Lord Turner is considering later retirement, is it really sensible to allow a deal to be struck where public sector workers who have not even joined the public sector yet will be allowed to retire at 60 in 2048? Is that really consistent with what Lord Turner is looking at?
