PENSIONERS' LOBBY

EDM number 47 in 1990-91, proposed by Harry Barnes on 08/11/1990.

That this House welcomed with pleasure the countrywide pensioners' representatives and the 40-strong Coventry deputation which attended the pensioners' lobby on 8th November; wishes to put on record its support of their ú75 basic pension claim which short term would redress the hardship suffered by pensioners who exist on the basic state pension; condemns the anomalies of a pension system which places a price tag of 25 pence on the years of full employment and public voluntary work of Mrs Winter of 8 Benington Crescent, Holyhead, Coventry; furthermore is seriously concerned as undue physical stress was experienced by many pensioners who attended the lobby; and recognises that urgent steps must be taken to ensure that future pensioners' representatives enter the House of Commons with the aplomb and dignity which is theirs by right.

This motion has been signed by a total of 25 MPs.
