Pensions Bill — Clause 1 — Accelerate Transition to Pensionable Age for Men and Women — 18 Oct 2011 at 19:30

Philip Dunne MP, Ludlow voted to accelerate the transition to an equal pension age for men and women.

The majority of MPs voted to accelerate the transition to an equal pension age for men and women; by raising the pension age for women, delaying some women reaching state pension age.

MPs were considering the Pensions Bill[1]. The amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • Amendment 3, page 1, line 8, leave out subsection (4)

Subsection (4) amends the timetable which sets out when a woman born on a particular date reaches state pension age during the transition from 60 to 65. The transition is accelerated, so that instead of increasing in one-month increments, state pension age increases in increments of three months[2].
