Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Jeremy Corbyn accordingly presented a Bill to harmonise the retirement age at 60 for both women and men; to provide for the state retirement pension to be linked to average earnings and to be universally available; and for connected purposes: And the same was read the First time; and ordered to be read a Second time upon Friday 23 July, and to be printed.
