Dear Colleagues

I have been made aware of the attached e-petition on the government’s change to the uprating of pensions from RPI to CPI, which has recently been made available on the Directgov web-site:

http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/1535

You will be aware that we are currently challenging this change by Judicial Review and the case it due to be heard in the High Court later this year. Should the site receive 100K responses it will result in the matter being debated by Parliament, which may assist our challenge.

 

Please feel free to circulate as widely as possible.

 

Regards

Ian Rennie

General Secretary
