North East Fife MP Stephen Gethins will welcome Mhairi Black MP, a leading campaigner against unfair changes to women’s state pensions, to a public event being held in the Howe of Fife Rugby Club, Duffus Park, Cupar on Friday, September 30 from 7-9pm.
Mhairi Black MP, who sits on the Parliament's Work and Pensions committee, has been at the forefront of representing women affected by changes their state pension entitlement and has been working with campaign group WASPI (Women Against State Pension Inequality) to call for the UK Government to rethink its plans.
Stephen has organised the public event after being contacted by an overwhelming number of constituents from across North East Fife concerned about the financial implications of the changes.
The WASPI campaign has struck a chord with many women throughout the country and hundreds of them have been in touch with Mhairi to share their experiences. The public meeting will provide the opportunity to engage with many more of the women affected.
During the evening participants will be able to hear about the work Mhairi has done and the effort being made by WASPI campaigners, as well as having the chance to put questions to her.
