The government's plans for
a new national pension scheme, currently called personal accounts, will be debated by parliament in the New Year.

The aim is to ensure that everyone at work has access to a pension scheme that their employer pays into.

The man responsible for making sure all this happens is already in post.

Ex-banker Tim Jones, chief executive of the Personal Accounts Delivery Authority, is charged with implementing the scheme by the proposed date of 2012.

In an extended interview, he tells Money Box how the new scheme will work.
