Rachel Reeves MP – A better deal for savers: helping ordinary workers secure decent living standards in retirement

In her first major speech on pensions policy since becoming Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Rachel Reeves MP discussed Labour’s plans for helping those on modest and low incomes save for a pension and secure a decent income at retirement.
