The article reports on a statement from the British Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) that the government's flagship pension reforms planned for 2012 will be phased in more slowly than expected. According to DWP, the reforms, which will allow the auto-enrollment of staff without a pension into an account, will be introduced gradually and will not be fully operational until 2016. The delayed timetable reflects the logistical problems of implementation and concerns over the cost of burden to employers.
