Upper Bann MP, David Simpson, has announced his support for the ‘Hands Off’ campaign defending the need for universal pensioner benefits.
The campaign aims to safeguard benefits such as the winter fuel payment, bus pass, free prescriptions and TV licences after the 2015 general election.
David Simpson said: “I fully recognise the significant contribution that the older generation have made to society in years gone by. Because of this we must do what we can to ensure that benefits are fully safe guarded to ensure that our older people feel valued for the positive impact they have made to our country.
