Commenting on the announcement of the resignation of the Prime Minister, Steve Webb, Director of Policy at Royal London said:

“There have been no votes in the Commons for over a month and there is now a risk of limbo until the Autumn.  This would be a golden opportunity for MPs to consider a Pensions Bill which has support around the House of Commons.  Measures such as implementing a pensions dashboard, improving automatic enrolment and enabling new forms of Collective pension schemes are not politically contentious.  If MPs can agree on nothing else, making progress on pensions would be a good use of their time”.
