Labour puts clear red water between itself and the Tories on women’s retirement

This is a stop-gap solution – but it will help.

Labour has promised to continue working with the so-called ‘WASPI’ – Women Against State Pension Inequality – organisation to get a better deal for women the Tories have been depriving of their pension rights.

The Conservatives, of course, couldn’t care less.

Labour will today unveil major plans to hand back 2.6million women some of the pensions that were taken from their grasp by the Tories.

The party will let ‘Waspi women’ (Women Against State Pension Inequality) retire two years earlier than planned by the Conservative government.

There’s a catch – the women will have their entitlement reduced by 6% for each early retirement year, up to a maximum of 12%.

But it means 1950s-born women who had their pension age hiked at short notice would be able to retire at 64 rather than 66, with no extra cost to the taxpayer.
