A PENSIONS group yesterday called [...]; Business IN BRIEF.
The National Association of Pension Funds called for the basic state pension and the state second pension to be combined into a new foundation pension.

The group also called for the Government to go further in their 2012 pension reforms to ensure everyone had an adequate retirement income.
