Calling All Pensioners

[Repeated from Monday 1pm.] Magazine programme with Tim Hamilton, addressing issues which affect pensioners across London. This week: following a successful mass protest, the National Pensioners Convention tells us that more than two thirds of bill payers are calling on energy suppliers to automatically return any credit after winter. Independent Age reacts to energy regulator, Ofgem's energy price cap announcement of 1st July 2024, pointing out bills are still 50% higher than they were before the energy crisis started in 2021. The charity also shares that the temporary cost-of-living support masks the issue of pensioner poverty in the UK. Our further musical tributes are to American musician Douglas Lloyd Ingle, founder, organist, composer and lead vocalist for the sixties hard rock band, Iron Butterfly. Produced by Deptford Action Group for the Elderly.
