Lord Henley, Tackling poverty, especially for children is a priority but your concern must also be with that of pensioner poverty due to the long standing DWP denial of equality for any pensioner abroad in a country not approved by them.
This has a detrimental affect on the quality of life for those severely restricted in what they are able to afford without help from their family or friends but the Government are adamant that they will not uprate their pensions thereby condoning the discrimination of their senior citizens .
