State pension age campaigners win right to judicial review

The Backto60 movement has won the case for a formal judicial review over the mishandling of raising the pension age for women in the 1950s.

Following a court hearing today, it has been declared that the campaigners will proceed to a judicial review.

Barrister Michael Mansfield QC supported the movement before the royal courts of justice and the department for work and pensions (DWP) in the two hour hearing today.

The case was supported by a report from University of West England law professor Jackie Jones highlighting the injustice suffered by those effected.

Backto60 also staged a walkout from workplaces at 10am today which ranged across the nation and was shared across social media platforms to raise greater awareness.

Some Backto60 members will be travelling on a battlebus to 10 Downing Street this afternoon. 

Also campaigning for a review of the changes to the state pension age for 1950s women, Waspi founder Anne Keen: 'The Waspi Campaign is delighted with the outcome of today's judicial review hearing. This is a milestone in the quest for justice for 1950s born women whose retirement plans have been shattered by the inadequate/lack of notice in relation to SPA changes.'
