Freedom Pass info

by Paul Johnston

London Councils have responded to our enquiries about the phased raising of the age of eligibility for Freedom Passes as follows:

1. It was a Government decision:

You can find it on the website: www.freedompass.org

And, yes, it was announced in the pre-budget report in November and it is entirely Government legislation – we weren’t even consulted on it.

2. Table of increases in age:

We explained this to Members in a report to March TEC – see attached link http://www.londoncouncils.gov.uk/committees/agenda.htm?pk_agenda_items=4019 which includes the table as an annex. To help readers I have downloaded it and posted it below.
