The All Party Parliamentary Group inquiry into UK pensions paid abroad published its report on 16th December 2020.

The overall finding of the APPG is that the policy of frozen pensions is illogical, unfair and causes significant distress.

The Report includes a submission by The Hon George Brandis QC, Australian High Commissioner in London.

The submission includes the statement “The Australian Government’s view is that all UK pensioners have paid contributions under the same rules and should be paid their UK pensions under equal conditions, no matter where they live.”
