Public Sector Pensions deal

Asked about the article in the Times suggesting displeasure in Downing Street at the way Alan Johnson handled the public sector pensions agreement, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that people should look at what we had said in the press briefings on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon where we had set out why we believed this was a good deal. It would save £13bn between now and 2050. It was always a case that the bulk of that saving, 85%, would come from new entrants. Asked how much displeasure had the Prime Minister felt at the way Alan Johnson handled things, the PMOS said that Downing Street’s attitude was contained in those two briefing notes.
