Cllr Matthew Dorrance is backing a UK wide campaign to protect free TV licenses for the over 75s.
In 2017, the Conservative UK Government promised to keep the TV licence free for everyone over 75 but it has broken that promise.
Across Wales 159,280 households including 9,180 households in Powys will be hit by the changes.
Cllr Matthew Dorrance said:
“The Tories have broken their promise to protect older people and they’re stripping over 75s of their free TV licence.
“Watching the television can be a lifeline for older people. At a time where pensioner poverty is rising, having a free TV licence gives older people access to the world outside of their homes and their day to day lives.
“Taking their free licence away and forcing them to fork out £154.50 per year is an act of cruelty.
“I urge everyone to support the campaign to stop this Tory cut.”
