Discrimination against pensioners

The Retired Members’ Committee was troubled by yet another one of Hampshire County Council’s notorious ‘consultations’. This one concerned proposed cost cutting measures to bus passes and concessionary travel.

The attached article was circulated by us to all the principal daily and weekly newspapers in our county, expressing our reservations about the consultation. The response was positive, with many publishing the letter’s content.

Hopefully it may help to convince our elected representatives that their proposed policy on this subject should be amended or, preferably, abandoned.
