Free TV licences for the over 75s. Alliance joins with other Pensioner organisations

A coalition of pensioner groups including the Alliance have united to demand that the next government step in to protect free television licences for all over-75s.

In a letter in today’s Times, we warn that losing the benefit will be devastating for many older pensioners, who will be forced to stop watching television or find an extra £154.50 a
year.

We expect to continue campaigning with other pensioner groups until the Government takes back responsibility for the concession that is so valuable to so many.
