That this House welcomes the publication of the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman’s report titled Women’s State Pension age: our findings on the Department for Work and Pensions' communication of changes; is concerned by the report’s findings of maladministration and failure by DWP to appropriately inform women of changes to their State Pension Allowance; and calls upon the UK Government to fully engage with the Ombudsman's findings and meet with campaigners to come to an equitable solution to address the injustice of state pension inequality, a problem which affects 3.7 million women in the UK, including 194,000 in Wales.
