Should the Government bring forward by six years its plans to raise the retirement age for women?

Hundreds of women were set to converge on Parliament today to demonstrate against increases to the age at which they can start claiming their state pension. Charity Age UK, which is organising the event, warned that the Government’s plan to raise the state pension age to 66 by 2020 – six years earlier than previously planned – does not give people enough time to plan and risks plunging thousands of women into poverty.
