Sir: Retaining free bus passes may have been seen as a cynical manoeuvre by the Coalition to keep the elderly onside but in fact it is an excellent example of joined up government thinking. Anything that keeps retired people interested in life and encourages them to go out and about promotes good health. Free admissions to museums serve this same purpose. The more active older people remain the less pressure on social services and the NHS.
