The BBC has decided to restrict the concession to those over 75 in receipt of Pension Credit, and has outlined a number of measures to keep those affected informed and encourage take up of Pension Credit. These measures include running outreach events and a public information campaign, and working with older people’s groups, charities and voluntary organisations. The Secretary of State told the House on 11 June that he will discuss with the BBC further measures the BBC can implement to help older pensioners, including promoting take up of Pension Credit.</p> more like this
