state earnings link to be restored

I was pleased today to see so many Lib Dem policies in the Queens Speech today. In particular I was pleased to see the proposed Pensions and Savings Bill, which among other things proposes to bring about "the restoration of the link between earnings and the basic State Pension". Long overdue and why labour didn't do it for 13 years is beyond me. It is essential that the state pension rises so I welcome this. Too many pensioners I met during the election were living in poverty. I trust Labour MPs will support this.

The full list of bills and actions proposed can be found here:
