On Wednesday (8 March 2017), I was pleased to show my support for a mass lobby of Parliament organised by the Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) campaign and supported by UNISON.

I was proud to sign a pledge to call on the government to implement fair transitional arrangements for WASPI women affected by the State Pension Age changes.

The campaign is fighting for compensation for women born on or after 6 April 1951 who are facing hardship in retirement as a result of the government’s changes to their state pension age.

The 1995 Pensions Act increased women’s state pension age to 65, the same as men’s. At the time, many organisations recommended that the government should ensure that the women affected were given fair notice of the changes.

But these recommendations were ignored by the government and as a result hundreds of thousands of women have had no time to make alternative arrangements and their plans for retirement have been shattered.

It is totally unacceptable that these women are heading for financial hardship in old age because the government failed to communicate the changes with them effectively. The government must reconsider their stance on this important issue and implement fair transitional State Pension arrangements so that these women get the retirement they deserve.

Tynemouth MP Alan Campbell tonight attended the results of the election of North Tyneside’s new Young Mayor and Member of the Youth Parliament.

Speaking after the results were announced Alan said “I want to congratulate Oscar Daniel, North Tyneside’s new Young Mayor and Sophie Anson, new member of the Youth Parliament. 

It is a fantastic achievement for both of them and I was very impressed by their hard fought campaigns.  I look forward to working with them in the future.”

Tynemouth MP Alan Campbell has welcomed the launch of a new mobile and broadband checker, available both as an online tool and as an app. The Ofcom Mobile and Broadband Checker is a one-stop shop which will show you your broadband and mobile coverage, test your connections and suggest tips for improving performance.

 

The App shows voice, 3G or 4G coverage from all major network operators, both indoors and outdoors, at any location in the UK – allowing people to compare which network offers the best service in places such as the home or office. Broadband availability and speed information is available using address-level data for the first time.

 

The app is free to download and available for both Apple and Android devices. It is also available as a web based version for desktop and laptop devices, which you can access at;

https://checker.ofcom.org.uk/

 

Alan Campbell MP said “It is concerning that 1.4 million homes and offices remain unable to sign up for broadband speeds over 10 Mbit/s, the speed required to meet a typical household’s digital needs.  Here in Tynemouth we have good coverage but for places like West Allotment upgrades still need to happen.  I am continuing to lobby to ensure that we get to 100%.
