Should policy reform replace the Bank of Mum and Dad?

The House of Lords Committee on Intergenerational Fairness and Provision has called on the government to make society fairer by supporting younger people in employment and the provision of housing, rather than leaving many to rely on help from the Bank of Mum and Dad.

The Committee’s recommendations included requiring better-off workers over the State Pension age to pay National Insurance Contributions while they work, and a review of the triple lock on State Pensions, free TV licences, free bus passes and winter fuel subsidies.
