Changes that came in a number of years ago are impacting on women born in the 1950s and are seeing their pensionable age rise from 60 to 66. I have had a number of representations from constituents and I think the changes are unfair. Whilst I am supportive of equalising the pensionable age between men and women, what I think has been missed here is that these women have been given very little notice of when these changes were coming in, in some cases just 18 months. This gave them very little time to make other previsions.
Thank you to all those who restrained themselves at the weekend and didn’t celebrate having their locks chopped and the pubs reopening by going off on a complete bender. I certainly marked my first haircut in over 5 months with a quiet pint of much missed Harvey’s Best.
