Julian Knight sets the record straight on Pensions

As the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Solihull, I felt compelled to write to you to correct some of the inaccuracies over government pension policy contained in Lorely Burt Liberal Democrat MP's column published in the Solihull News 12 April called "A fairer way forward".  Mrs Burt claimed in the piece that the 'triple lock' on pensions - whereby pensioners will always see a rise in their state pension - was "Lib Dem". This policy was in fact brought before parliament by a Conservative Chancellor and voted on in the main by Conservative MPs. The same applies to the proposed rise to £10,000 in the income tax personal allowance.
