Turner Report

Asked what the Prime Minster’s take on the Turner Report was, the PMOS said that as the Prime Minister had said at the weekend, we would welcome the Turner Report, and we had. The Prime Minister had also said that nothing should be ruled in or out, and that was the position. We believed that this was a very serious report, and as Lord Turner had said, it was 400 pages long, and he was not expecting a "yes" or a "no" today, which was the right approach. We now had the substance, and a serious analysis and a series of proposals. Therefore, the important thing was that we now had a serious debate which would do justice to the seriousness of the report. As John Hutton would make clear in his detailed statement today, we would work towards publishing proposals next year.

  1. Turner’s report is a must for all old age citizens. Create a parallel or new pension system or just good bye to good retirement life.
