During my time as Member of Parliament for Inverclyde I have been approached by a number of women who are adversely affected by the changes to state pension age. I joined many of them in Glasgow, last month, at a day of action to highlight our concerns to the UK Government’s proposals.
The UK Government have ducked their responsibility to the WASPI women for too long. It’s time for action to be taken to support the women of Inverclyde and Scotland as a whole.
Therefore, I have written to the newly appointed Secretary of State for Work and Pensions to urge the UK Government to re-consider its proposals and provide the women affected with the pensions they are entitled to and deserve.
