Backbench Business — State Pension Age: Women — Consideration of Rate of Increase of State Pension Age for Women — 1 Dec 2016 at 11:44
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.
The motion rejected by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That this House has considered acceleration of the state pension age for women born in the 1950s.
Prior to the vote the Speaker explained:
- When the question was put in Westminster Hall, the Chair’s opinion as to the decision of the question was challenged. As the motion has now been brought before this Chamber, under Standing Order No. 10(13) I am required to put the question on the motion without debate.
