A debate on the effect of equalisation of the state pension age on women born in the 1950s will take place in Westminster this afternoon.
The Westminster Hall debate at 4.30pm follows a backbench motion on 7 January which was tabled by Scottish National Party for Paisley and Renfrewshire South Mhairi Black.
The House of Commons debate on 7 January called for transitional arrangements for women affected by state pension equalisation. MPs backed the motion 158 to nil.
However, backbench motions are not binding on the government.
A petition started by Women Against State Pension Age (WASPI) campaign has reached nearly 140,000 signatures at the time of writing.
The campaign is fighting for transitional arrangements for women born in the 1950s who claim they were not communicated about the rise in state pension age by the government, leaving them little notice period.
The government has said it will not revisit the 2011 Act timetable.
The shadow pensions minister Angela Rayner agrees there has been a communication problem. She said: "It was not the equalisation which has upset women, but the issue of communication. It undermines the positive changes we have made to pensions such as the single tier pension."
Today pensions minister Ros Altmann wrote on Twitter that she had never supported the aims of the WASPI campaign.
"It would introduce new inequality and unfairness. State pension from age 60 is not fairness," she wrote.
Hargreaves Lansdown head of retirement policy Tom McPhail says the government looks determined to stick to its guns, and any reimbursement would be at a cost further down the line.
He said: "The campaigners have built up a considerable head of steam and have widespread support so the challenge will be to make the case that there are individual groups of women who do indeed have legitimate grounds for a transitional arrangement and also, specifically how it could be paid for.
"The cost of any government concession could very quickly run into billions of pounds so it is hard to see how the government could give any ground without some off-setting measure elsewhere, such as raising further the retirement age for subsequent generations."
