Joe Harris

It is with great sadness that the NPC reports the death of ¬†Joe Harris on Monday 16th February. Joe was the general secretary of the NPC from 2001 until 2009, and had a key role in developing the organisation and its policies, particularly on the state pension. He was instrumental in highlighting the issue surrounding the surplus in the National Insurance Fund and led the campaign to mark the centenary of the state pension in 2008. A more detailed celebration of Joe’s life will be posted shortly.
