DWP – COLD CALLING AND PENSIONERS – 26 March 2018

[Dr Julian Lewis rose –

Mr Speaker: The good doctor is a clever bloke; I am sure that he can blurt it out in a sentence.]

Dr Lewis: Does the Minister agree that people who use cold-calling to cheat others out of their pensions are the lowest form of pond life, and will he arrange for criminal sanctions to be visited upon them?

[The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Work and Pensions (Guy Opperman): Yes, yes and Project Bloom, a City of London police operation to ensure that we stop scammers, has brought many prosecutions – pending and future.]
