On the BBC One programme Question Time coalition minister Chris Huhne had said: “The proposals actually lead to better pensions for low and middle income earners.”
Channel 4’s researchers checked the statement using the government’s own online calculator.
Reporter Cathy Newman concluded: “The government claim that the overhaul of public sector pensions will enrich many low and middle income earners is fanciful.”
Chris Huhne was the MP who claimed a trouser press on his parliamentary expenses.
