Personal plea to every MP to save free TV licence for over 75’s

Every UK MP is being sent a personal plea to save the free TV licence for the country’s millions of over 75’s before the concession is axed on May 31.
The NPC has emailed personal letters to MP’s of all parties asking that they support the campaign to retain the benefit for our 5.4 million oldest citizens. While the Government has announced a consultation on whether non-payment of the TV licence fee should be decriminalised, over 75’s who cannot afford the £154.40 cost (£157.40 from April) still face having to switch off in June - whether it is on a  'pay as you go' basis or not.
