House of Commons
Bus passes for WASPI women
EDM #16
Tabled 15 October 2019
2019-19 Session
That this House is concerned that not all the women living in England who are affected by the 2011 changes to state pension age are entitled to a free bus pass; notes that a free bus pass is a small concession, given that women born in the 1950s have lost tens of thousands of pounds in pension payments; further notes the merits of a free bus pass in sustaining high streets, public transport and the environment; and calls on the Government to provide free bus passes to all women born in the 1950s who have reached the age at which they would have been entitled to a bus pass before the introduction of the Pensions Act 2011.
