A local MP has challenged Rishi Sunak and Sir Keir Starmer to promise full compensation for the 6,000 WASPI women in his constituency.

Gavin Newlands, SNP MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire North, warned that not fulfilling this would be a "betrayal to the women in Scotland who have been so badly let down Westminster."

Following the publication of the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman report, both the Tories and Labour Party have failed to promise to uphold Westminster's responsibility to provide justice and fully compensate the estimated 3.6 million WASPI women.

Among these, around 6,160 women are from Paisley and Renfrewshire North, whereas more than 342,000 are from across Scotland.

The MP said: "Rishi Sunak and Sir Keir Starmer must finally give a cast-iron guarantee to the WASPI women in Renfrewshire that they will be fully compensated for this huge Westminster scandal.

"For too long, the over 6,000 women in my constituency have been silenced - but no longer.

"The report from the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman could not have been clearer: the WASPI women were failed, and they were failed by Westminster.

"So whether it's Rishi Sunak or Sir Keir Starmer that enters No. 10 after the next general election, both political leaders must now commit to fully compensating the millions of women who have been let down by the system.

"A failure to do so would be a betrayal to the women in Scotland who have been so badly let down Westminster.

"They have suffered for long enough. It is time for action."
