Book launch marks century of state pension

100 Years of State Pension, a book produced by four members of the Profession’s Ageing Population Interest Group, Tony Salter, Andrew Bryans, Colin Redman and Martin Hewitt, was launched at an Institute sessional meeting at Staple Inn on 26 January. The event was attended by Sally West, Age Concern England policy manager.

Colin Redman, one of the authors, said: “The anniversary of the Old Age Pension Act 1908 provides an opportune moment to re-examine the achievements and shortfalls of the past 100 years. Despite the achievements in pension reform over the past century, there is much that still needs to be done to build an affordable and sustainable system that ensures everyone receives an adequate income in old age.”

A presentation and discussion about the issues raised in the book will take place on 16 March at the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh.
