MP RE-ELECTED TO OLDER PEOPLE'S GROUP

Eastbourne MP Nigel Waterson has been unanimously re-elected as Co-Chairman of the All Party Group for Ageing and Older People, a post he has held for a number of years. The Group is one of the largest cross-party groups at Westminster.

Nigel said: “I am delighted to be asked to serve in this capacity again, and to have support from colleagues of all parties. There are a huge number of issues affecting older people which demand answers from politicians of all parties.”

“We currently have 2.5 million pensioners living in poverty. I know many of my retired constituents have real problems making ends meet. This is wholly unacceptable in the 5th richest country on the planet in the 21st Century.”
