Nicola Sturgeon to Set Out SNP Pensioners Plan

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will today launch the SNP’s Pensioners Plan - setting out how a strong team of SNP MPs will protect the interests of Scotland’s older people.

While visiting a care home in East Dunbartonshire, the First Minister will announce a range of policies the SNP will push for to stand up for pensioners.

The SNP has already taken strong action in government to protect the interests of pensioners in Scotland – including investing in free personal care and the concessionary travel scheme – and will set out details of what SNP MPs at Westminster will push for on behalf of older people.

Commenting, SNP Leader Nicola Sturgeon said:

“I am immensely proud of the SNP’s record in government when it comes to standing up for our older people

“We've protected and extended the concessionary travel scheme which gives people the freedom they need to enjoy their live.

“And free personal care which ensures our older people receive the standard of care they deserve regardless of their ability to pay has been one of the biggest landmarks of the devolution era.

“But there is undoubtedly more that could be done at Westminster to build on our progress in Scotland and protect the interests of older people.

“Our pensioners have contributed hugely to society, and are entitled to get a fair deal in their retirement in return.

“A strong team of SNP MPs holding the balance of power will ensure that the contribution older people have made throughout their lives is recognised – and will deliver a new and better deal for pensioners in Scotland.”
