Public sector pension deal urgent, says Lord Hutton

The downgrading of Britain's growth forecasts has made the case for public sector pensions reform more urgent, Labour peer Lord Hutton has said.

The former minister, who conducted the coalition's review on pensions, said change was now the "order of the day".

Speaking on BBC Radio 4's The World This Weekend, he said the government's offer was a "perfectly credible" one.
