SNP MP met with a group of WASPI Women who traveled from all over Scotland to attend a demonstration outside the British Parliament last week. Mr. Thompson and other MPs then met the group at a meeting in the House of Commons.

Commenting, MP Richard Thompson said: “It is a humility to meet the WASPI activists who have come such a distance to get their message across to the UK Government.

“Since their election as an MP in 2019, women from across Gordon have been in touch with me about the outrageous position the UK government has left them in.

“There are thousands of women across the North East who have been deeply affected by the UK government’s failure to treat them fairly, and the Wasby women have their full and unequivocal support.

The activists should be commended for their hard work in keeping this issue in the public eye.

“They are not going away and the next stage in the ombudsman’s investigation into their case will be crucial because at that point, I expect the UK government will not be able to obfuscate and delay taking action any longer.”
