Metro – Gold age pensions
A double-digit pension rise is on the cards for pensioners, according to the Metro.
The 11% rise from the Treasury is designed to keep pace with spiralling inflation, it says.
“Gold age pensions” declares the Metro, which notes the rise was promised on the same day the government encouraged “restraint” from rail workers who walked out over an offered 3% pay rise. Treasury minister Simon Clarke confirmed pensioners are set for a rise that matches inflation, the paper reports.
