SNP Report on WASPI

21st September 2016

The UK Government must stop neglecting its responsibilities to the WASPI women. Pensions are not a benefit; they are a contract with workers which the UK Government has broken. As a result, the women affected are being denied their pension rights.

4,000 women in the Motherwell and Wishaw constituency alone will be affected by the changes with some women having to wait an extra year and a half before accessing their pension.

It is a disgrace that the Tories are refusing to review the decision despite an independent report highlighting a number of options to alleviate the impact which are entirely affordable and reasonable. It has now been left to the SNP to form an opposition to these utterly disgraceful proposals.
