    "The Centre for Policy Studies research fellow, who earlier this year proclaimed the death of pensions, argues the current savings landscape is characterised by a "fundamental schism" between pensions and ISAs.

    He said up-front tax relief on pension contributions should be abolished and a workplace ISA should be introduced instead of traditional retirement savings vehicles.

    Johnson called for a wholesale shift from the current tax relief system attached to pensions - 'exempt, exempt, taxed' (EET) - to 'taxed, exempt, exempt' (TEE) relief on savings."
