Commenting on the Pensions Bill published today Sally Low, Director of Policy and External Affairs at the British Chambers of Commerce, said:

"The proposals announced in the Pensions Bill will see a major change in the relationship between employer and employee. The Government will need to ensure that every employer understands the new requirements and that severe penalties will be coming their way if they do not comply.


"We will work with the Government to ensure that the message gets across to businesses but also continue to press the Government to provide financial assistance to small firms in order to help them meet the transition costs."
