In support of WASPI day of action – Open Letter

Around 20,000 women in Lewisham born on or after 1st April 1951 are set to lose out by up to £12,000 on their pensions after the tory government moved to equalise the retirement age to 65.

 Little or no notice has been given especially when the changes were implemented faster than promised by the 2011 Pension Act.

 Lewisham Council voted unanimously to support Women Against State Pension Inequality known as WASPI and I urge your readers to do the same by writing to your local MP asking them to raise this monstrous injustice with Government Ministers and ask for proper transitional arrangements to be made.

Cllr Alan Hall
Lewisham Council
