In response to the Green Party's Older People's Pledge‚ Michelle Mitchell‚ Age Concern and Help the Aged's Charity Director‚ said:
"We welcome the Green Party's focus on older people and desire to address the challenges of ageing as we head towards the general election. Abolishing the default retirement age and increasing the Basic State Pension are absolutely key to improving the retirement prospects for millions of older people."
