Around 80 members of the Women Against the State Pension Inequality (Waspi) group waved banners and chanted (pictured main) in protest at the Government's previous decision to raise the state pension age from 60 to 66. The banners, in the group's signature purple, read: 'The Great Pension Robbery', while others were just branded 'Waspi'. The protesters were quickly escorted out by security, but were met with a standing ovation by Labour and SNP MPs, who tweeted praise for them afterwards (inset) Waspi's aim is to get rid of the six year difference in pension age for some 3.9million women. There was no mention of pension inequality in Mr Hammond's speech, which Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn slammed in his response speech.
