Could a "pot for life" solve the issue of small pensions?

Earlier this year the Department for Work and Pensions said it will work to encourage consolidation to solve the problem of small pension pots. But pensions minister Laura Trott said the longer-term solution to this issue would be to move to an Australian-style "pot for life" system.

Amy Austin, news editor at FTAdviser speaks to Tom Selby, head of retirement policy at AJ Bell and Kate Smith, head of pensions at Aegon, about the small pots issue, what government could do to resolve it and whether a "pot for life" is a workable option.
