May is preparing to raid pensions to pay for a hard Brexit

Responding to Theresa May's refusal today at PMQs to guarantee the triple lock for pensioners, introduced by the Liberal Democrats in coalition, Liberal Democrat Shadow Chancellor Susan Kramer said:

"Theresa May is preparing to raid pensions to pay for her hard Brexit.

"The Conservatives must clarify their position now to pensioners across the country.

"The triple lock was one of the Liberal Democrats' biggest achievements in government, lifting many pensioners out of poverty. Now this progress risks being undone.

"This election is a chance to prevent a hard Brexit and secure the strong economy we need to protect pensions and public services."
