MATT WARMAN MP CALLS FOR SMOOTH BREXIT NEGOTIATIONS

Matt Warman, MP for Boston and Skegness, has called for the UK’s negotiations to exit the European Union to be carried out with as little disruption as possible, following today’s win for the Leave campaign.

The State Pension Rises Again

Today, the Basic State Pension increases to £119.30 a week, the biggest real-terms rise in 15 years.

Because of our triple lock, we have ensured that the state pension rises every year in line with wages, prices or by 2.5% – whichever is highest.

So the full basic state pension is now £1,125 a year higher than it was in 2010. That’s only possible because we’re taking the difficult decisions so that we can deliver dignity and security for those in retirement.
