We need your views on the governments autumn statement

The Autumn Statement is a key moment in the Parliamentary calendar as the Chancellor takes centre stage to update MPs on the government's taxation and spending plans, based on the economic projections provided by the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) - a body set up in 2010 to provide independent economic forecasts.
This year’s Autumn Statement will be the most important in years. It is the first set-piece event for new Chancellor Philip Hammond MP, and will be a key opportunity for the new Government to outline it’s economic plans and priorities for the coming years.
We are already hearing some rumours emerging in the newspapers, and MPs are beginning to press their views upon the Chancellor.
Later Life Ambitions wants to know what our members want to see in the Autumn Statement:
Do you believe universal benefits should be protected for all pensioners after Britain has exited the European Union?
Do you agree that better off pensioners should not be entitled to winter fuel payments, TV licences and bus passes?
Which universal benefit do you value the most?
We have created a short survey where members can tell us their views. We want to use your ideas and opinions to form the basis of the Later Life Ambitions response to the Autumn Statement and share this information with MPs, Peers and the Government.
The survey should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete, and can be filled out online by using this link:
The survey will remain open until Wednesday 16 November, and we’d be very grateful for your participation.
It is also posted on our website at: http://www.narpo.org/index.php/notices.html
Please circulate to members for completion.
