We’re already paying tax on our state pensions | Pensions

I’d like to clarify the misinformation about pensioners not currently having to pay tax on their state pensions that has been circulating. In the current financial year, I will, for the first time, be paying tax on my state pension (my sole income) as a result of the tax threshold policy. Therefore Rishi Sunak’s claim in the leaders’ debate (Report, 4 June) that pensioners will pay income tax for the first time under a Labour government is incorrect.

A Nigel Farage supporter in Clacton says: “We’ve got to get to grips with immigration. We’ve got people who can’t get hospital appointments” (Report, 4 June). Have they been near a hospital recently? Ours has a high proportion of immigrants working there, in every type of healthcare. We’d not have a hospital without them.
