In its response to the inquiry called by the Public Accounts Committee, IF makes the case for greater integration between the health and social care services as the only way of successfully addressing the needs of Britain’s ageing population and reducing demand on the NHS.
In response to the Interim Report of the Cridland Review into the long-term direction of government policy towards the state pension age, IF draws attention to the obstacles to private pension saving faced by Generation Y, and suggests that the fairest outcome is for the state pension to become means-tested.
IF welcomes the inauguration of the Resolution Foundation’s Intergenerational Fairness Commission, and calls to attention five of IF’s published papers that could be useful to the Commission’s research and debates.
At the invitation of the Long-term Sustainability of the NHS Select Committee, IF raises three key intergenerational points: ageing and health costs share a complex relationship; healthcare spending is really about politics, not demographics; and if the public wants higher spending on the NHS then higher taxes should not fall on the young.
In its public inquiry response to the Department for Communities and Local Government Select Committee, IF explains why the current housebuilding model doesn’t work, and how it would be possible to “unlock” new homes from within our existing housing stock to ease the pressure.
