In the last few months people have had the opportunity to sign a paper petition in support of the WASPI campaign.
I have been speaking with my constituents and encouraging those affected by the pension inequality that affects women born in the 1950s to sign the petition.
My constituents have been collecting signatures in Wirral South and then delivering these to me. I received a good number of signatures in support of the WASPI campaign and this week I took them to Westminster with me.
Yesterday I formally submitted these petitions in the House of Commons chamber along with fellow MP’s. I was very proud to do this on behalf of the women in my constituency who are suffering due to the way the changes to women’s pensions were implemented.
WASPI campaigners recently travelled to Birmingham for The Conservative Party Conference to protest against the injustices they have faced.
I hope that the petitions and all of the other action that campaigners have taken forces the Prime Minister and Pensions Minister to take notice and make fair transitional arrangements for all of the women affected.
One thing is for sure and that is that the activists will continue in spearheading the campaign until this happens.
