The Campaign to protect free TV Licenses for over 75s received the backing of Northumberland MP Ian Lavery this week.
Mr Lavery issued the following statement:
“I am continuing to support Age UK in their campaign to keep free TV Licenses for over 75 year olds.
The Tory Government didn’t make any commitment to save the free TV Licence in their election manifesto, and AGE UK are still waiting for a reply to the petition that they handed into Downing Street last summer.
Research shows that 6010 people in Wansbeck Constituency will lose their Free TV License if no action is taken to stop the current Conservative plans.”
