MP presents petition to Parliament

11th October 2016
Peter Aldous presents petition to Parliament collected by the Waveney WASPI (Women Against State Pension Inequality) group. The group have been out collecting signatures relating to the changes to the state pension that particularly affect women born in the 1950s (on or after 6th April 1951).
 
Peter also sent letters to around a thousand local women enclosing petitions.
 

 

Peter Aldous (Waveney) (Con)

I rise to present this petition on behalf of 2,249 residents of the Waveney constituency in the same terms as the hon. Member for Worsley and Eccles South.

The Petition of residents of Waveney.

[P001753]

The petition states:

The petition of residents of Waveney,

Declares that as a result of the way in which the 1995 Pension Act and the 2011 Pension Act were implemented, women born in the 1950s (on or after 6 April 1951) have unfairly borne the burden of the increase to the State Pension Age; further that hundreds of thousands of women have had significant changes imposed on them with little or no personal notice; further that implementation took place faster than promised; further that this gave no time to make alternative pension plans; and further that retirement plans have been shattered with devastating consequences.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to make fair transitional arrangements for all women born in the 1950s (on or after 6 April 1951) who have unfairly borne the burden of the increase to the State Pension Age.

And the petitioners remain, etc.
