Uncertainty' dominates public pensions meeting

Reforms to public sector pensions might well have to wait until after September's General Election.

That was just one of the topics discussed at length on Monday night in a well-attended meeting at the Manx Museum.

It was organised by the Public Sector Pensions Authority, and chaired by its Vice Chairman, John Shimmin MHK.

Mr Shimmin hopes to put a raft of recommendations to Tynwald in June - including a system of greater contribution, decreased payout and a higher retirement age.

However, he and speakers Ian Murray and John Callister admitted that the future was a far cry from certain.
