Responding to James Brokenshire’s proposals to fund housing deposits with pension pots, Gregg McClymont, director of policy for The People’s Pension, and former shadow pensions minister, said:

“Introducing a policy of robbing Peter to pay Paul will not make housing any more affordable. Instead it’s likely to push up house prices and leave younger people worse off in the future.

“Pensions are about providing much-needed incomes for people in retirement, and all the international evidence points in one direction; pension pots accessed for housing or other reasons during a working life are never adequately replenished ensuring people will be left worse off.

“The answer to the housing shortage is building more affordable housing, not diminishing people’s pensions.”
