Jeremy Hunt: Tories will keep ‘triple lock’ on pensions


Chancellor Jeremy Hunt says that the Conservatives would commit to keeping the so-called “triple lock” system for increasing state pensions if they win the election.

The pension triple lock is a government promise to raise publicly funded pensions by the level of earnings, inflation or 2.5%, whichever is highest.

Laura Kuenssberg asked the chancellor if the triple-lock would be in the Conservatives’ election manifesto.
