Meg Munn MP has welcomed Gordon Brown’s Budget as "good news for the pensioners of Sheffield"

Labour"s Budget 2003 announced

£100 extra for every household with a pensioner aged 80 or over, in addition to the £200 winter fuel payments, for the rest of this Parliament;

Extending to 52 weeks the period over which all pensioners in hospital receive their full state pension.
