City MP Stephen Morgan has continued his support for the WASPI campaign by hosting another coffee and information morning at his constituency office in Albert Road.

WASPI (Women Against State Pension Inequality) are women born in the 1950s who have faced pension injustice from the Government – Mr Morgan has been supporting them throughout their campaign for equality.

The coffee morning, which is at 10am – 12 on Saturday 3 November, will serve as another get together for those involved in campaigning, an information and drop-in event and a discussion with Mr Morgan on how he can continue to help going forward.

Stephen Morgan MP said:

 “I think It’s important that I continue to support this campaign for justice by hosting events, helping to raise awareness and writing to Ministers.

 “Nine thousand women in Portsmouth alone are affected by pension inequality so it was disappointing to find that nothing was mentioned in The Budget about this important issue.

 “I hope that hosting these events will go a small way towards helping Solent WASPI to get the justice they deserve.”

 Solent WASPI said:

 “We are grateful for Stephen Morgan MP’s continued support to our efforts and willingness to help women affected by the change in state pension age.

 This event will help raise the profile of the issue and provide much needed advice to local women”.
