The government is looking at a major reform of the state pension system.

The government has outlined plans for £200 billion of investment in infrastructure projects in the UK as part of a strategy for economic growth and recovery.

The European Parliament has given its backing to proposals that would see maternity leave on full pay extended to 20 weeks.

The government has come under fire for imposing what has been described as a “green stealth tax” in the spending review.
