With sincere apologies for such short notice, we regret that today's event with Matt Hancock MP, Minister of State for Business, Enterprise and Energy will not take place.
Because of the Government reshuffle, it was decided at the last moment that Mr Hancock's new responsibilities mean he will have to go to Brussels today, 22 July, to represent the British Government at meetings.
He sends sincere apologies and we and the City of London would like to add our apologies. The meeting will be rearranged in the autumn and we shall be in touch about the new date.

On Thursday June 12th, Chris Daykin, former HM Government Actuary* gave the fourth lecture in Politeia's 2014 Economic series Paying for the Future: Contributory or Tax funded Systems?
The changes proposed for the UK pensions system have been broadly accepted across the political spectrum. Along with the new single tier state pension to replace the NIC pension and pension benefit, an additional workplace auto-enrolment scheme is being introduced.
Western economies face rising costs for pensions, healthcare and other social goods. At the same time pressure on the public finances is greater. How can efficient and affordable social systems compete in an ever tougher global market?
Politeia's 2014 economic series explores how different international systems pay for the social policies which their societies expect. Addressing the series will be politicians, economists and actuaries; and specialists who have advised on, or created and introduced such systems.
