Motion text

That this House believes that British pensioners living in countries where the value of their pensions are frozen and not uprated annually in line with inflation is an injustice that should not be allowed to continue given that they have paid taxes and national insurance for their pensions; considers that treating these pensioners differently from those living in other overseas locations who have their pensions automatically uprated is increasingly out-dated in a world of great freedoms; further believes that the state's role is to support individuals in planning and retirement security and that this cannot be achieved if for no logical reason an individual's entitlement is affected by where they retire; and calls on the Government as it considers proposals for future pension reform to meet groups representing pensioners affected by frozen pensions to discuss how reform of the pension system to one fit for the 21st century will affect them, and how a just system of pension provision can be secured for those who move overseas.
