Pension campaign gathers momentum
Further to my last posting, I continue to be swamped by letters and e-mails from around Britain of women who are unhappy with their pensions. Growing numbers do indeed appear to be missing out on pension protection for years since 1978 when they were bringing up children at home. What I now hope to persuade the Government to do is to look at this issue systematically and to identify some common threads. Some of the women who have been in touch would have missed out on £10,000 or more during their retirement if we hadn't raised this issue - let's hope we can find a way to identify them and get it put right.
