In March of this year, International Consortium of British Pensioners (ICBP) Board Member Patrick Edwards visited the UK to promote our new report titled ‘Frozen Pensions: A Policy Overdue for Review’ and discuss the recent engagement from the Canadian and Australian Governments on the policy.

The report presents key findings on the cost of addressing the policy issue, estimated at approximately £60 million per year to Treasury should the Government mimic previous reciprocal agreements the UK has negotiated with other countries in the past, and opt to unilaterally uprate all overseas pensions going forward.

Amongst attendees at the APPG meeting were parliamentarians Martyn Day MP, Lord Wasserman, Lord Davies of Brixton, and Lord German, as well as a representative from the Australian High Commission.
