    You weren't suggesting that he was asking them what to do. You can't even keep up with yourself.

    “ A reform of pension tax relief could allow the Government to make billions in savings each year. Earlier this year, the Pensions Policy Institute, a think tank, reported the cost of income tax relief on pension contributions had increased to £9.3bn in 2018 for the Treasury. It estimated that a flat rate of 25pc would reduce that total to £7.3bn. ”

    All that for mere 2 bln per year

    “ Steven Cameron, of Aegon, said the reform could make a big dent in the future pension pots of higher and additional rate taxpayers unless they increased their contributions. But a higher, flat rate of relief would be in line with the Government’s levelling up rhetoric and be widely seen as a fairer system, Mr Cameron suggested. ”

    Level up income tax levels then!

    Here is interesting bit - if they go ahead then “top up” will be lower, but they’ll still charge same tax when you get your pension

    Spending Review: Millions face cut in value of workplace pensions - BBC News

    Millions of retirees will see the future value of their pension cut owing to a planned change in the way payments are calculated from 2030.
    All the fuss about something some other government will change long before then, especially if the reds get into power next time.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.
