Dear Department for Work and Pensions, FAO Esther McVey

Women born in the 1950s lost their pension due to maladministration of the government. How much money over the past 4 years have the government paid to women between the age of 60 and 65 years on ESA, PIP, JSA and disability allowance? This money should have been their state pension instead they are being forced to claim other benefits. If government gave 1950s women their pension it would not be a loss of 78 billion as stated by tory government, when you take into account the money given out to women on benefits. Also the government would get back the tax on our pensions and probably at 40 per cent if they gave us our dues. Suddenly this figure seems false.

Yours faithfully,
Kathy McDonald
