Hilary Simpson, Chair of the WASPI Campaign, said: “When the Ombudsman recommends compensation we will be urging Parliament to accept it without quibbling, and to implement it fairly and without delay.”
She said Starmer’s backing was huge. "The support of the leader of the opposition for our fair and fast compensation campaign is a welcome development.”
The pledge signed by Starmer reads: "I support fair and fast compensation for 1950s women."
Last week they published a report strongly arguing for "top level" compensation. Hilary Simpson, Chair of Women Against State Pension Injustice (Waspi) 2018, said this confirms the injustice. “We are delighted that the MPs’ report has come out so strongly in favour of the maximum compensation,” she said.
