  • Do you agree with the auto-enrolment review that all savings up to £45,000 should be pensionable once a worker earns over £10,000?;
  • Do you agree that auto-enrolment should be extended to 18-year-olds?; and
  • The Association of Consulting Actuaries has proposed a ‘National Flexible ISA’, which would take in pension contributions and allow savers to withdraw up to £30,000 in accumulation to fund house deposits. Do you think this should be introduced?
