The following article is a rather depressing read http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-21546542 . The number of people saving for their retirement in a pension scheme is at a recent low.

Previous Government should have done more to promote group personal pension schemes and protect defined benefit schemes. I hope the current Government and its successor will be more effective.
