Liz reaffirms commitment to the WASPI campaign

WASPI is a campaign group representative of 3.8 million women born in the 1950s who have been adversely affected by the mismanagement of increases to their State Pension age.

As a result of changes made in 2011, women across the UK are now suffering financial hardship – with 3300 women affected in Leicester West alone! This injustice can’t go on. I have been a longstanding supporter of the WASPI campaign and I was proud to meet WASPI women again in Parliament recently to sign their pledge and reaffirm my commitment to support their campaign.
