On the 18th of May, the All-Party Parliamentary Group on State Pension Inequality for Women met for its Annual General Meeting.
The APPG is co-chaired by Denton and Reddish MP Andrew Gwynne alongside Peter Aldous MP. It aims to provide a cross-party forum in which to hold the Government to account on the issue of transitional arrangements to compensate 1950s-born women who are affected by changes to the state pension age. Each APPG is required to hold an AGM at least once a year, in order to elect officers and discuss key priorities for the year ahead.
Commenting on the AGM, Andrew Gwynne said:
“This was a very positive meeting, and it’s great to see even more colleagues from across the political spectrum getting involved with the work of the APPG.
1950s-born women have been ignored for far too long. The APPG is more committed than ever to giving a voice to 1950s-born women in Parliament, and putting pressure on the Government to address this extraordinary injustice.
I look forward to continuing to work alongside Peter, and once again thank colleagues for attending this AGM”.
