Midlothian’s MP is hosting a meeting for women affected by changes to the state pension age.

Owen Thompson (SNP) is keen to hear their concerns at the meeting in the Dalkeith Corn Exchange on Monday, June 20 at 2pm.

Those wishing to attend should contact or 0131 663 9675. If they cannot attend, they can still contact Mr Thompson with their concerns.

Mr Thompson said: “I hope this meeting might lead to the formation of a Midlothian Women Against State Pension Inequality group, which can serve as a support network and will liaise with me over the issues I need to pursue along with my colleagues at Westminster.”

MPs are lobbying for fairer transitional arrangements for women born in the 1950s.
