TV LICENCE DEMONSTRATION OUTSIDE OF BBC.
The National Pensioners Convention (NPC) ┬ácalled on local pensioner groups, trade unions, community groups, students, members of the public, MPs and councillors to make a stand on Friday 21 June 2019 outside the BBC Newcastle HQ to show our opposition to the removal of free licences for the over 75’s subject to a means test. North East MPs Emma Lewell-Buck and Chi Onwurah addressed us and the National Secretary of the NPC spoke passionately about the work that now had to be done by all of us. PCS and Unite gave their full support.
