"However, paying for it by removing pensions tax relief is like playing Russian roulette with peoples futures.

 

“Of course education is crucial for the future of the individuals and the economy, but so too is ensuring we foster a savings culture where people ensure they put enough by for their futures -  whether that be for pensions or care. There have been significant changes over recent years that have significantly moved the goalposts for pension savings and further changes to this could cause irreparable damage."
