Bring back Free TV Licences

Lib Dems in South Somerset are campaigning to keep free TV licenses for many over 75s.

The Conservative Government has scrapped free TV licences, which will impact on 12,160 older residents in South Somerset.

During the pandemic, the TV has been a lifeline for many elderly residents who’ve taken the government’s advice and stayed at home to protect themselves.

Back our campaign to save the free TV licences by signing the petition below.
