This amendment in the House of Lords falls far short of what is needed- Jim Murphy MP

Jim Murphy MP, Shadow Defence Secretary, responding to the Government’s decision to report in 6 months on MoD fire-fighter’s pension age, rather than lower to 60 years old bringing them in line with civilian fire-fighters, said:

“There is a real sense of let down amongst the MOD fire-fighters that the government are treating them so unfairly.

“This amendment in the House of Lords falls far short of what is needed.

“We will now monitor this new six month review process to make sure it is a meaningful change and not simply a way of getting out of a tough political corner.”
