- 2016 National Retired Members Conference
- 15 June 2016
Conference notes that many pensioners in the UK are losing their lives through cold.
It has recently been revealed that 43,000 pensioners lost their lives last year, largely assumed to the bad weather. Yet not one politician from any party uttered a word about this national disgrace. We repeat not one of our so called caring politicians commented on this sad news.
Conference instructs the National Retired Members’ Committee to liaise with the National Executive Council to campaign to publicise this very sad news and urge this uncaring government to provide greater care and assistance to our more vulnerable pensioners. Conference further instructs the National Retired Members Committee to report back to the National Retired Members Conference 2017.
