    Ban pension cold-calling now, MPs demand.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 11 Dec 2017, 12:45 pm

    Cold-callers trying to sell pensions could be banned by next summer if the government takes action now, a group of MPs has demanded.

    Members of the Work and Pensions Committee said that otherwise, the ban may not happen until 2020.

    The MPs want the government to include the measure in a bill, which is before Parliament.

    At least 42m has been lost to pension scammers since 2014, according to the City of London Police.

    The government have known that the pensioners are a soft target for the cold callers, but they have resisted - until now - the introduction of laws to prevent this from happening.

    I will be interested to watch what the result is of this present bill.

    If Theresa May really cared about the old folk in Britain she would not need to be cajoled into acts like this one.

    Of course, she DOES NOT care about the old, the poor or the disabled.

    My sentiment entirely Zathrus.

    After another defeat in the commons she is now looking to try to defeat the nasty party reputation.

    Not having much luck at that either.

    She has split the Tory party right down the middle and when the really hard negotiation starts on Brexit she could find herself just a non-entity.

    I really don't know how she has survived this long.
