Company Pension, A-day, and Age discrimination

The BBC is today reporting that some new pension rules are being delayed until December 1. Further, the article suggests that Industry (employers and/or finance companies) are seeking changes to the previously proposed rules. The government is allowing more consultation:

Do the rules, today, allow a lady, age 61, to take her small, defined-contribution company pension(s) while continuing to work for a very small firm of fewer than 5 employees? She has 3 non-state pension funds - one from a previous employer, a smaller one now closed from her present employer, and a stakeholder pension fund of her own. She already receives an 'old-age pension' from the state.
Can she take any or all of these today, and continue working? She thinks that that was one of the A-day changes, to encourage people to continue in work.
As a supplementary, anyone know if the new rules as in the BBC article, or changes sought by Industry, are likely to affect what she can do from December 1?

Well, for starters, I'd take it from the horses mouth rather than a third party - . The links their will help you investigate further.

I read the HMRC page but am none the wiser. Anyone able to provide a lucid explanation?

Thanks - I used the Pensions advisory service site

which more or less answered most of the queries about the 61 yr old lady, well, other than the stakeholder.
But I still don't understand what the new 'mini consultation' mentioned in the press release is about, nor whether something might happen that would benefit or disadvantage the lady in December.
