May I, through your newspaper, make a request to Norwich City Council for them to explain to the working population of Norwich as to why Norwich City Council have increased their concessionary parking tickets by over 100pc.

A one day ticket that was £5 has now been priced at £12 and that the allegation is 'the administration cost of that department'!

This has increased my expenditure from £25 to £60 per week without any explanation to the working population.

I find this most annoying as to the increase expenditure, as my old age pension increase was £4 per week.
