Magazine programme with Tim Hamilton and Harry Haward, addressing issues which affect pensioners across London. This week: DAGE’s Barbara Raymond reacts to the 2016 budget, giving tax breaks to the wealthy and yet targeting the disabled, in proposing to cut their benefits to live independently. The majority of disabled people are of pensionable age, and with a proposed loss of disability benefits for the disabled, this will greatly impact on the quality of life for some of our most vulnerable. Plus a report on the National Pensioners Convention's reaction to the budget. Produced by Deptford Action Group for the Elderly.
