APPG Chair presses Government on Frozen Pensions
May 12, 2021 Frozen British Pensions 3 Comments
This week, Sir Roger Gale MP, Chair of the APPG on Frozen British Pensions, pressed the Government on its frozen pensions policy during the Queen’s Speech debate in the House of Commons.
“The Prime Minister referred to his concern about pensions and for pensions – I am delighted to hear that.”
“I hope that concern will extend to unfreezing the frozen pensions of so many again expat United Kingdom citizens around the world.”
“In some cases, because these individuals’ pensions were frozen when they left the United Kingdom, they are now living in semi-poverty.”

How many more years have to go by before this injustice is rectified surely this must be a record for inept and useless Governments unable to right a wrong.
70+years to debate a total injustice takes a lot to understand perhaps it is a way out of sight out of mind IT JUST WONT GO AWAY

This issue of the “stolen pensions” isn’t going anywhere – 70 years and counting. I hope that the minister’s flippant and dismissive response to Peter Dowd MP’s parliamentary question on 13 December 2021 has incensed other expat pensioners as much as it has incensed me.
May I urge all APPG members to push hard to get this injustice sorted out in the forthcoming Spring Budget. At least, let’s make a start – put arrears to one side for the moment if we have to, but let us at least demand the full pensions to which we are entitled starting on 1 April 2022.
We have Covid, now we have rocketing inflation. We are hurting.
