    With the holiday season on the horizon, Cardiff Central, Liberal Democrat MP, Jenny Willott is warning local residents about scam websites that charge for European Health Insurance Cards (EHIC). She is reminding people they can get the card for free and don't need to pay for it.

    The EHIC is a free card that replaced the old E111 forms in 2004. The cards entitle people to free or significantly reduced charges for government run healthcare in any country in the European Union. However, unofficial websites will charge if you apply through them.

    Jenny Willott, the Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, is encouraging local residents to install energy-saving home improvements, under the Coalition Government's Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF), and claim up to £7,600 back.

    The GDHIF is a new scheme open to all householders, landlords and tenants in England and Wales who want to improve the energy efficiency of their homes. The scheme helps pay for a range of measures such as solid wall insulation and new boilers if people get at least two eligible Green Deal energy efficiency improvements.

    Jenny Willott, Welsh Liberal Democrat MP, for Cardiff Central has welcomed the news that under Liberal Democrat manifesto plans for the General Election, pensioners would be guaranteed to earn at least an extra £790 per year by the end of the next parliament.

    Announced by Liberal Democrat Pensions Minister Steve Webb, the Liberal Democrats will guarantee in law that in each year pensions will rise by the highest of wages, prices or 2.5%. These changes would mean the state pension will be worth at least £131-a-week by 2020, up from just £97.65 four years ago.

    Dear Editor,

    The Liberal Democrats want to build a stronger economy and a fairer society for all ages.

    At the last General Election the Liberal Democrats promised to introduce 'the triple lock guarantee', which re-established the link between pensions and earnings. It was a key promise when we negotiated with the Conservatives to set up the Coalition Government, and we have now delivered it in Government. As a result pensioners in Cardiff are guaranteed an annual rise by whichever is the highest of earnings, prices or 2.5%. Thanks to the Lib Dem 'triple lock' the state pension is £440 more per year now than if it had increased in line with earnings since the start of this Parliament.

    Jenny Willott MP said:

    "We have all been appalled by the accounts of truly horrific abuse by Jimmy Savile, but it is also shocking that he was able to get away with these seemingly blatant offences over an extremely long period of time.

    Sir,

    As Consumer Affairs Minister I want to see empowered, savvy shoppers who know their rights, shop around for the best deals and drive competition.

    So I'm really pleased that we have just brought in a major new set of consumer rights, giving online shoppers greater protection against hidden fees, charges and other pitfalls.
