WASPI campaigners told they'll get £10,000 compensation after July

WASPI campaigners have been told by one party they deserve £10,000 compensation. The SNP has committed to paying out £10k to WASPI women affected by the historic injustice in payments from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

The Scottish National Party promised to continue supporting WASPI and standing up for women affected by changes to the State Pension age. In response, WASPI said: “WASPI is pleased with the SNP’s ongoing support and looks forward to continued collaboration with the party in pursuit of justice and compensation for 1950s-born women.”

SNP MP Marion Fellows told Express.co.uk previously: "It is a further stain on UK justice. A WASPI woman dies every 13 minutes. After all these years a £10,000 payment is what these women deserve. I have met with them and I have demonstrated with them. Now I want to see immediate action from the Government."

The Tory manifesto did not mention WASPI, 1950s born women, or women affected by changes to the State Pension age. In response, WASPI said: “WASPI is deeply disappointed by the Conservative Party’s manifesto, which fails to recognise the gross injustice caused to the millions of WASPI women. “We have met with a number of Conservative MPs who are supportive of WASPI but this has not transitioned into any concrete pledges by the party. What is more concerning is that Boris Johnson appears to be backtracking in his support for WASPI women. Just a few months ago, when questioned on WASPI, he said he would ‘commit to doing everything I possibly can to sorting out’ the issue.

“As a campaign, we are calling for a bridging pension to provide an income from age 60 to the new State Pension age, combined with compensation for those women affected who have already reached their new State Pension age. We would like to see a firm commitment from the Conservative Party on a clear solution for WASPI women as this manifesto is simply not good enough.

“WASPI will continue to engage with the Conservatives on this significant matter and will work with them to understand what support they plan to offer the millions of 1950s women at the earliest opportunity.”
