I'm sure that if you've written to your MP or Senators you'll have been told something like "the Australian Government will continue to press the issue with our UK counterparts on behalf of UK pensioners in Australia".
So I expect that you'll be interested to know that when Scott Morrison and Boris Johnson met virtually on Thursday, while they
reaffirmed the unique relationship between Australia and the United Kingdom, built on shared values and common interests, and sustained by the deep bonds between our peoples
confirmed their commitment to a free, fair, inclusive and rules-based trade and investment environment and opposed the use of economic coercion
there's no mention of frozen pensions in the joint statement.
So it appears that once again Scott Morrison has missed an opportunity use those "shared values and common interests, ... sustained by the deep bonds between our peoples" and "commitment to a free, fair [and] inclusive ... investment environment" to resolve the frozen pensions issue for us.
If you're writing to your MP or Senators, please let them know
about this missed opportunity.
