Fairer care and local transport key issues for older voters

Older & Bolder highlighted five key issues, our HIGH FIVE, for older people in General Election 2011: fairer care, secure pension, local transport, my involvement, and a national plan on ageing.

Our summary of the political parties' proposals in relation to those key issues is set out below. In terms of the implementation of any proposals by a new Government, the devil will be in the detail. Older & Bolder has identified some of the details that will, we believe, need to be tracked during and after the formation of the next Government. By Patricia Conboy
