Pensioners' Charter

EDM number 1288 in 1989-90, proposed by Ron Brown on 17/07/1990.

That this House welcomes the charter produced by the Scottish Old-Age Pensions Association; agrees that the basic state retirement pension should be calculated on the basis of 75 per cent. of adult male earnings for a couple and 50 per cent. for a single person, uprated at six monthly intervals; calls for the appointment of a specific Cabinet Minister for the elderly; supports the abolition of standing charges in respect of gas and electricity; believes that free travel should be granted to all pensioners using public transport; and urges the release of extra resources to provide more suitable housing for the elderly, as well as to reverse cuts in the National Health Service and the social services.

This motion has been signed by a total of 48 MPs.
