Archbishop should 'commission' new C of E pension valuation

Pensions consultant John Ralfe has told BBC Radio 4's Today programme the Church of England has "changed the discount rate" of its pension.

He accused the Church of doing so in order "to reduce [its] required deficit contributions".

Mr Ralfe called for the Archbishop of Canterbury "to commission a new valuation" of the pension.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Tuesday 21 January 2014.
