Contact your MP now on Pensions Reform

This government are going back on their promise in the Coalition Agreement, and are forcing 5 million people to wait longer for their State Pensions, with little time to plan. Women born in 1953, 1954 and 1955 are hit hardest, with 500,000 having to wait over a year longer for their pension. 33,000 will have to wait two whole years.

Tonight, we have our first real chance to try to defeat these changes once and for all, when the Pensions Bill is debated in the House of Commons.

The Labour opposition is going to argue that the Pensions Bill should be abandoned, because the proposals on the state pension age are so unfair.

It’s crucial we all get in touch with our MPs to ask them to vote to give the Pensions Bill the chop. Even if you’ve emailed a dozen times already, please email them again – this is crunch time.

Unless I am mistaken, Public Sector pensions and MPs pensions are linked to those of the Civil Service and therefore should be being subjected to the same legislation. Could someone please enlighten me as to whether or not MP's pensions will be affected by the legislation envisaged, or have they now become a 'separate' or 'special' case not included in the new measures.
