To Mel Stride, Secretary of State for Work and Pensions

I am a pensioner and I am aware that a large number of pensioners live in extreme poverty. With rising prices they have to decide between eating or heating. For one of the richest countries in the world it is a shame that those who have given a lifetime service to their country and have paid taxes all their working lives should now be living in abject poverty. The triple lock is a system that ensures pensions are increased each year either in line with inflation, in line with average wage increases across the UK, or by 2.5 percent - whichever of these options provides the highest increase. This gives some small help to pensioners and it would be a tragedy if this meagre benefit was taken away from those who are already struggling to keep their dignity and self respect in tact.

Petition text

The current, and future governments of whatever political persuasion, must not alter the Triple Lock Scheme in any way, shape or form and must retain it as it is.
