UK General Election Announced

The Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, has announced that the UK General Election will take place on Thursday 4th July.

He has requested His Majesty the King to dissolve Parliament on 30th May and the King has agreed to his request.

The time between today and 30th May 2024 is to allow for what is called “wash up”. All incomplete legislation lapses when Parliament is dissolved and wash up allows the government, with the agreement of the opposition, to complete what is deemed essential legislation.

BPiA hopes to have a list of constituencies and candidates available on our website shortly. If you have followed our advice and registered to vote and appointed a proxy, now it is up to you to decide the issues that are important to you. No doubt, ending the frozen pensions policy will be an important consideration in how your direct your vote.

I suggest you contact the candidates in your electorate and ask them if they will support a change to the frozen pensions policy. Also, please urge each candidate if elected to join the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Frozen Pensions.

There is still just enough time to register to Vote and set up a Proxy, if you do it online Immediately!

Registration must be complete before June 18th, and the proxy set up before June 24th
