Labour vow to save free TV licences for the over-75s if they win the election

November 5, 2019

Labour has announced that they will bring back free TV licences for the over-75s. 

This follows millions of pensioners facing being without a TV licence after the Tories backtracked on a manifeso commitment from 2017. 

This has been a key area of concern for Cardiff North MP Anna McMorrin, who gave this statement "This is an issue I have campaigned hard on and will continue to do so. 4 in 10 older people say TV is their main source of company, but as of next year 3.7 million older people will lose out on their free TV licence. Don’t forget the Conservatives u-turned on their 2017 manifesto commitment and in doing so they are letting down so many older people in our communities."
