What have the Lib Dems achieved in government - part 6

I remember the outcry when Labour increased the basic state pension by just 75p. This achievement by Liberal Democrats in government was the very opposite of that attitude.

By restoring the link between earnings and pensions, the coalition government secured the biggest ever rise in the level of the state pension. And it means that the average pensioner will receive £15,000 more in their lifetime than they would have done before.
