Simon Baynes MP supports increase in Pension Credit claimants

Having campaigned to make sure that eligible people in Clwyd South are claiming pension credit, I raised this issue with the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Rt Hon Mel Stride MP, on 6th March in Oral Questions in the House of Commons. I asked if he would give an assessment of how effective the UK government’s campaign has been in Wales and the rest of the UK.

I was very pleased to hear that, at the end of last year, the UK government had seen an increase of 177% in claims year-on-year which is great news for pensioners in Clwyd South and the rest of the UK who are getting the help and support to which they are entitled.

Watch in full here.
