PENSIONS minister Malcolm Wicks was questioned by elderly people in Crosland Moor during a lunchtime visit yesterday.
The Croydon MP took questions from concerned local pensioners about how much money they received, fuel payments and council tax rebates.
He had tea and biscuits at Crosland Moor Community Centre, Park Road West, to help Kali Mountford's efforts to get re-elected in the Colne Valley, but he got a rough ride from the elderly people who came to meet him.
The former university lecturer said: "This Government has done more for pensioners than any other but there is still a lot to do - that is why we are asking for another term to do even more.
"Great Britain is an ageing society and life expectancy is increasing which is great news. But because of this we have had to consider pensions more closely.
"I am proud of the fact that more than three million people are getting pensions credit.
"I think we are moving forward but I agree there is more to do."
