David Linden: ...unanimously passed a motion saying that the women of the 1950s generation should be looked after.

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

Philippa Whitford: ...sudden changes or things that catch people out, with no notice to prepare for what they might have to pay for care. This is something that will affect people in the future.

Many of us in this House and my party have had discussions with the Government about the WASPI women. We all know what the issues are—those are very clear—and what has happened niggles me and my constituents. Those people have to continue to work, and their children must pay...

Deidre Brock: ...going hungry because this Government lack simple human decency. Library research from last year showed that 86% of the impact of austerity cuts lands on women and will continue to do so in future.

Patrick Grady: ...further debates, questions, petitions and amendments to legislation, because this is not going away.
