“Government Must Finally Listen To 1950s Women”, says Ogmore MP

June 13, 2019

Chris Elmore, MP for Ogmore, has reaffirmed his support for 1950s-born women who have been affected by changes to the state pension age while meeting campaigners in London last week.

 

Campaigners seeking to tackle the injustice converged in London this week as the issue was taken to the High Court.

 

The Ogmore MP took the opportunity to catch up with some of the women affected from his constituency and from across the UK.

 

Chris Elmore MP said:

 

“The 1950s women have had their pensions robbed by this cruel Tory Government and the lack of a response from ministers to date is a national disgrace.

 

“Around 4,000 women have been affected by these changes across my constituency and far too many of the people affected were not properly informed.

 

“The government should finally deliver on its responsibility to these women – many of whom have been left in financially precarious situations as a result.”

 

The UK Government accelerated changes to the state pension age for women in 2011, which now stands at 65. The entitlement age for both men and women will rise to 66 next year.
