Nearly 3500 Cambridge women have missed out due to the Government’s mishandling of pension reforms.
Following a 150,000 strong petition, the issue was debated in Parliament as MPs called on the Government to make fair transitional state pension arrangements for 1950s women.
Speaking after the debate Daniel Zeichner MP said:“The women who are set to lose out as a result of these mishandled reforms have worked hard all of their lives, but many are now desperately worried about their retirement plans.
“It is not at all surprising that the pension minister who introduced the reforms recently described them recently as a ‘bad decision’.
“The Tories know they are in the wrong on this issue and desperately hoping it goes away. They now refusing to even publish any information on the protections they looked at and how much this would cost.
“We are demanding that they come clean about exactly what transitional protections were looked at and as a matter of urgency bring forward potential solutions to help many of the women who have seen their retirement plans ruined.”
