Magazine programme with Tim Hamilton, addressing issues which affect pensioners across London. This week: a repeat from January 2014, DAGE’s Barbaras Raymond and Banks and Cathy react to the findings from the Saga survey which states that out of 12,000 older people aged over 50, 1 in 5 are planning to cut back on other spending so that they can heat their homes. We ask what should the government do now to prevent the continuing excess in winter deaths that come about when older people turn down or even turn off their heating during the coldest part of the year? They also react to Labour’s leader, Ed Miliband’s election promise that if voted in, in 2015, he would freeze energy price rises for 20 months. DAGE’s Harry Haward reacts to the scaremongering by our MPs that pensioners, among other low income groups, will have to choose between heating and eating, and this is followed by a timely reminder from Harry of what we offer at DAGE, such as news that Charis Grants can help clear your energy debt. Produced by Deptford Action Group for the Elderly. [Repeated Sunday 2pm.]
