Local authorities to budget for pension changes

End of contracting out of state second pension

Pension changes will need to be budgeted for by local authorities.

That's from the Policy and Reform Minister Chris Thomas.

It's as a Treasury directive has signalled the end of 'contracting out' of the state second pension.

It means some employees and employers will have to pay more tax.

Mr Thomas says it's something government has also had to deal with.
