Labour’s Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell has warned that cuts to the economy could be “unimaginable” if there is no increase in the public service pension age in future.

“But you don’t need to change it, if you had a change that was reasonable enough we would be prepared to take that decision in a year’s time.”
