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.
Following a very encouraging meeting with the new Leader of West Sussex County Council and others, I am delighted that the Council will go back to the drawing board on their proposed license charges that cafes and restaurants that have outside seating and chairs were being faced with.
