Retirement Age

Asked whether the Prime Minister supported a compulsory retirement age, the PMS said the Prime Minister supported Government policy, which was set out very clearly in response to the Turner Commission a couple of years ago. Put that it discriminated against workers over 65, the PMS replied that the whole purpose of the Turner Review was to look at trends over the next 30, 40, 50 years and to set policy on the basis of those trends and that’s what we were doing. The Turner Commission lasted for two years and was a very thorough piece of work. It was widely welcomed on a cross-party basis and there was widespread consensus for its conclusions at the time.
