Tim Farron: Labour remains silent on public sector pension reform

November 3, 2011 1:46 PM

"Today's offer is a clear step forward and hopefully close to a final agreement that will ensure that public sector pensions are protected, while also being fair to the taxpayer.

"The Coalition Government and the unions have been negotiating for many months now in an attempt to find a suitable solution, while Labour has been noticeably absent from the debate.

"It is extraordinary that on an issue as important as the pension of millions of public sector workers, Labour is silent. Ed Miliband now needs to tell us where he stands."
