UK - Expatriate pensioner Annette Carson has been granted leave to take her fight for equal pensions to the House of Lords.
Carson is campaigning for the right to an equal state pension for British pensioners living abroad, many of whom have had their pensions “frozen” at the rates paid when they first went overseas.
In June, Carson was denied permission to appeal after she lost her case at the Court of Appeal.
But a ruling by the House of Lords’ appeal committee means Carson can continue her fight.
PwC, KPMG, EY and Deloitte must break up their consultancy and audit businesses into distinct firms to provide greater focus on the "most challenging and objective audits", the competition watchdog has said.
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has released its first batch of guidance setting out how the guaranteed minimum pension (GMP) conversion legislation may be used to resolve unequal payments.
