NDM6697 - United Kingdom Independence Party debate

NDM6697 Neil Hamilton (Mid and West Wales)

To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:

1. Notes and welcomes the campaign of the Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) group to achieve fair transitional state pension arrangements for all women born in the 1950s affected by changes to state pension laws.

2. Calls on the Welsh Government to work with the UK Government to provide the following to all women born in the 1950s affected by changes to state pension laws:

a) a bridging pension that supplies an income until state pension age, which is not means-tested;

b) compensation for the absence of a bridging pension to those who have already reached their state pension age;

c) compensation to all those who have not started to receive a bridging pension by an appropriate date, which would be sufficient to recover lost monetary interest; and

d) compensation to the beneficiaries of the estates of those who are deceased and failed to receive a bridging pension.
