Covid-19 pensioner support payment
EDM #499
Tabled 18 May 2020
2019-21 Session
That this House recognises the additional stress and anxiety among the older population during the covid-19 outbreak; notes that a significant contributory factor to this is an increase in the financial burden on older people during the pandemic; that such costs include paying for deliveries of groceries, medicines and other essential supplies, use of private hire taxis instead of public transport, telephone and internet costs and home heating; and calls on the Government to acknowledge that financial burden and to implement, as a matter of urgency, a covid-19 pensioner support payment throughout the UK to help meet those financial pressures,.
