Scottish Parliament: Prison Officers Association (68 Is Too Late Campaign) (18 Apr 2024)

Pauline McNeill: ...on the 68 is too late campaign, my reaction was that 68 is too late for everyone, but it is certainly too late for prison officers. I also put on record that although I did not manage to get to the WASPI—Women Against State Pension Inequality—demonstration today, I, in common with everyone else in the chamber, endorse the WASPI women’s continued fight for justice. When we...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: Women Against State Pension Inequality (18 Apr 2024)

Clare Haughey: Can the First Minister confirm to the WASPI women—women against state pension inequality—who are watching this question time and to those who are protesting outside Parliament today that the Scottish Government stands with and supports them in their continuing battle with the United Kingdom Government for compensation? Will he personally lend his weight to urge UK ministers to bring...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Government Leadership (28 Mar 2024)

...-turning and dumping of policies, from the two-child limit to the lifting of the cap on bankers’ bonuses. Most shamefully, there is the latest betrayal of Women Against State Pension Inequality—WASPI. Anas Sarwar promised to campaign for the WASPI women, but he has now turned his back on them. That is unforgivable. The WASPI women will not forget and they will not forgive.

Women’s State Pension Age - Statement (26 Mar 2024)

Lord Dodds of Duncairn: ...and supply agreement with the then Conservative Government, this was one of our central demands and the Government committed to that. I am glad that it remains in place. On this issue of the WASPI campaign, I congratulate the women and those behind it, who—over many, many years—have brought it to this point. I understand the complexities, I understand it was produced only on Thursday...

Scottish Parliament: Women’s State Pension Age (Poverty Rate) (26 Mar 2024)

Shirley-Anne Somerville: ...Scottish Government welcomes the findings of the report, which recognise the communication failures by the United Kingdom Government. The Scottish Government has always and will always support the WASPI women—women against state pension inequality—and this is a significant moment for all those who have been involved in that campaign. We know that too many single female pensioners are...

Women’s State Pension Age (25 Mar 2024)

Liz Kendall: ...there were problems with communicating changes to the state pension age, why did the Government press ahead with the changes in the 2011 Act in the way they did, and in the way that sparked the WASPI campaign? The Government are currently committed to providing 10 years’ notice of future changes to the state pension age, but Labour’s 2005 pension commission called for 15 years’...

Point of Order (21 Mar 2024)

Gavin Newlands: ..., is my constituent who has fought for a decade for the Department for Work and Pensions to right these wrongs. She felt a huge sense of responsibility in acting on behalf of the millions of WASPI women. In my office, we have been with her every step of the way. The DWP has treated my constituent and the WASPI women with contempt, obfuscation and delay. Shamefully, it is now failing to...

Business of the House (21 Mar 2024)

Peter Bottomley: ...the House will soon see the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman’s report on women’s state pension age and its findings on “injustice” and associated issues. The report is about the WASPI women—Women Against State Pension Inequality. I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton) who campaigned with me on these issues and saw...

Work and Pensions: Support for Pensioners (18 Mar 2024)

Anna Firth: Southend’s indomitable pensioners and WASPI women Frances Neil and Deborah Dalton came to see me on Friday on behalf of the 10,000 WASPI women across Southend. With the ombudsman’s final report due within weeks, will the Secretary of State please commit to coming to the House to make a statement so that these issues can be fully aired?

State Pension Changes: Women — [Sir Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Mar 2024)

Jim Shannon: ...the Minister, I do not believe that we have just yet. I encourage the Minister to continue discussions with his Department to ensure that these matters are addressed. We ask for an apology for the WASPI women. We ask for the issue of maladministration to be addressed. That is quite simple when what has happened has been categorised by the Department itself as maladministration. If that has...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Women against State Pension Inequality (12 Mar 2024)

Paul Maynard: There are currently no plans to meet with WASPI representatives. The Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman’s investigation on State Pension age communications is ongoing. Section 7(2) of the Parliamentary Commissioner Act 1967 states that Ombudsman investigations “shall be conducted in private”. The Department is cooperating fully with the Ombudsman in their investigation.

Income Tax (Charge) ( 7 Mar 2024)

Steve McCabe: ...last year. And, of course, there are the hidden costs. A prudent Chancellor would have put something aside for the contaminated blood scandal, the victims of the Post Office Horizon nightmare, the WASPI—Women Against State Pension Inequality Campaign—women debacle and the LGBT ex-service personnel. Those are all things that he should have sorted by now but has ignored, probably...

2. Questions to the Counsel General and Minister for the Constitution: Pensions Loss ( 6 Mar 2024)

Delyth Jewell: The 1950s-born women denied their state pensions still await justice. I suggested to you last year that WASPI also stands for 'Waiting and Still Pleading for Integrity'. They should not still be waiting. It's a scandal that the UK Government has dragged its feet for so long that women have died before getting the money they're owed, and they are due financial redress. I hope, I trust that the...

Poverty Reduction - Motion to Take Note (22 Feb 2024)

Baroness Taylor of Stevenage: .... Nearly one in five pensioners—almost 2 million—now lives in poverty. The Government have failed on the uptake of help for poorer pensioners. I will take the opportunity to mention the WASPI generation, who were not adequately informed of the pension-age changes which left their financial and career planning in tatters as seven years were added to their pensionable age when they had...

Scottish Parliament: Social Security (20 Feb 2024)

Clare Haughey: ...plans to review universal credit, but I have not heard anything about what would be done about pensions. I know that the Labour Party has supported the Women Against State Pension Inequality—WASPI—campaign. Can Mr O’Kane tell me what will be done to compensate the WASPI women if his party forms the next Westminster Government?

Scottish Parliament: State Pension ( 8 Feb 2024)

Clare Haughey: ...that “pensions are safer” in the United Kingdom. How hollow those words are now. Westminster has presided over the injustice that has been done to Women Against State Pension Inequality—WASPI—women; the state pension is shamefully inadequate as a result of years of austerity; and, although the state pension age is expected to rise to 68, reports this week suggest that it may rise...

State Pension Age (Compensation) ( 7 Feb 2024)

Alan Brown: ...1960 inclusive who have been affected by increases in the state pension age; and for connected purposes. Like so many injustices created by Westminster, the lack of resolution for the 3.8 million WASPI—Women Against State Pension Inequality Campaign—women is a disgrace. Those 3.8 million women were given the bombshell that their state pension age was going to increase from 60 to 66...

Pensions (31 Jan 2024)

David Linden: unexpected rising costs. I met the Trussell Trust just this morning, and it is certainly seeing a larger number of pensioners using its service than before. This is of course the case for many WASPI women, given that the ombudsman found that there was indeed maladministration in the communication from the Department for Work and Pensions, with the cost of living crisis certainly...

Business of the House (25 Jan 2024)

Deidre Brock: ...election, should we not debate some of the key legacies of the last 14 years of Tory rule? Where should we start? There are still the scandalously unresolved scandals, such as infected blood, the WASPI women—Women Against State Pension Inequality Campaign—and Post Office Horizon, to name a very few, but has the Leader of the House had time to reflect on recent comments from Sir Michael...

Defined-Benefit Pension Schemes (17 Jan 2024)

Justin Madders: ...good faith and promises being kept. If we look not just at the schemes that have been mentioned today but at others—I am thinking of the FOSPEN, the Midland Bank clawback issue, and of course the WASPI women—we see that there is a whole generation of pensioners out there who feel that they have not been delivered what they were entitled to. What kind of message does that send to the...
