I wonder how long the BBC will continue to use RPI for annual pension increases.

I notice that RPI has been removed by ONS as an 'official' measure of inflation.

This month , October, RPI was 2 %  but the ONS 'equivalent' was 1.2 %

I'm sure in these straightened times the BBC would ditch RPI if it could get away with it.

There was a rumour that the government was thinking of forcing Pension Schemes to abandon RPI.

This article shows just how out of touch the CPI is!  I mean stockbroker fees?


It looks like the government will be revising the triple lock on State Pensions after the next Election.

It would be interesting to see how the government could force a pension scheme - the BBC's - to abandon a measure that is an integral part of the agreement. Even if that measure doesn't offcially exist any more. Anyone out there with a far better grasp of the legal implications than me?
