House of Commons
Women Against State Pension Inequality
EDM #3
Tabled 14 October 2019
2019 Session
That this House calls on the Government to financially support women worst affected by the accelerated increase in the state pension age introduced through the Pensions Act 2011; notes with concern that significant numbers of women were unaware of pension age equalisation set out in the Pensions Act 1995; acknowledges the poor communication of successive governments to advise women of planned increases in the state pension age; believes that in view of the recent High Court decision only a political solution will deliver pension justice; calls on the Prime Minister to honour pledges made to Women Against State Pensions Inequality (WASPI) campaigners during leadership hustings to look at the issue with new eyes and fresh vigour; and further calls on the Government to take all necessary actions to deliver pensions justice for WASPI women.
