"Triple Lock Plus" yet another empty Tory promise

28 May 2024

Responding to the Conservative Party's announcement on a "Triple Lock Plus" for pensioners, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary candidate David Kendall said:

"Rishi Sunak's stealth tax hikes will blow a £1,000 hole in pensioner's pockets by 2027, over four times more than what he is giving back with this meagre announcement.

"The Conservative Party has hammered pensioners with years of unfair tax hikes and broken their word on the triple lock. People won't be fooled by yet another empty promise from Rishi Sunak after this recoed of failure.

"Liberal Democrats are proud we brought in the triple lock and will continue to stand up for the millions of pensioners who have been so badly let down by this Conservative government."
