MP commended after fees vote

STEPHEN LLOYD is to be congratulated for standing by his promise to oppose increases in student fees.

Will he now follow this up by similarly opposing the government intention to base future pension increases on the consumer price index instead of the retail price index, whereby hundreds of his constituents will be penalised to the extent of large sums of money for the rest of their lives?
