FILEY MP Anne McIntosh has welcomed a Government decision to reform legislation and give women a retirement boost.

Miss McIntosh, said she was pleased with the amendment to the Pensions Bill which will allow around 250,000 women longer to plan for their retirement.

She added: “While these changes do come at a substantial cost of £1 billion, it is generally recognised that anybody, male or female, needs ten years to properly plan and make the appropriate financial arrangements.”
