The PDF of the update can be read here

There is a lot of verbiage and it’s a little confusing to ascertain what it’s actually saying. Hopefully, this will shed some light.

For those who don’t know, an OAP Advisory Panel provided recommendations to the government on the design of a needs-based, sustainable OAP back in October 2019. That report is available here.
