Forgotten 14s

EDM number 889 in 2014-15, proposed by Dr William McCrea on 18/03/2015.
Categorised under the topic of Pensions.

That this House recognises that those people working in Northern Ireland at ages 14 and 15 between 1947 and 1957 continue to be the subject of a discrepancy in that they have worked longer in comparison to their Great Britain counterparts when the working age changed to 15 in 1947; further recognises that Home Responsibilities Protection and Category B pensions do not adequately address this discrepancy; also recognises that not all are protected by state pension credit and other income-related benefits; and, as an excepted matter and the responsibility of HM Revenue and Customs, calls on the Government to address this discrepancy.

This motion has been signed by a total of 21 MPs.
