Dear Mr Bryson,
Thank you for your letter regarding the new initiative being
taken with the Kensington & Chelsea Times. It sounds a very
worthwhile development, and as the person responsible for pension
policy in the Parliamentary Labour Party I very much welcome it.
There is a clear need to develope a public debate about how we
ensure a decent level of provision for people in retirement, particularly
given the threatening moves being made to cut back welfare spending
by the present Government. I very much hope the forum in the local
press will get a good response and be successful.
Donald Dewar MP
