Call for all OAPs to get free TV.

A COVENTRY pensioners' group has urged the government to extend free TV licences to all OAPs.

The call was made in a motion approved at a meeting of the city branch of the British Pensioners' and Trade Union Action Association (BPTUAA).

It states: "The BPTUAA calls upon the national government to remove the 75 years age discrimination to the pensioners' concessionary national television licence and to make it immediately available to all pensioners."

The motion has been sent to social services ministers, all three Coventry MPs and Chancellor Gordon Brown.
