Commenting on the launch of HM Treasury’s latest consultation into the pension cold calling ban Helen Morrissey, Pension Specialist at Royal London said:

"With every day that passes more people are being targeted by scammers and we need to get this ban in place as soon as possible. The consultation says it seeks “final views” with the intention being to lay the regulations before both Houses in Autumn 2018 “subject to Parliamentary timetabling.” We urge the government not to let the timetable slip any further on this vital issue."
