Barnsley MP’s anger over pension reform

Have your say

SOME 600 women in Barnsley East will lose out due to the Government’s pensions reforms, claims the area’s MP.

The research, by the House of Commons Library, shows 600 women in Barnsley East born in 1952 and 1953 will not be eligible for the single tier pension since they are due to retire in 2017, before the state pension reforms come into effect.

Michael Dugher MP said: “These pensions changes have hit hard-working women in Barnsley time and again.”
