HC Deb 14 June 1945 vol 411 c1792W
Mr. Palmer

asked the Minister of Labour whether it is the policy of his Appointments Board to grant equality of opportunity for fresh employment to persons over 50 years of age, many of whom served in the last war, who sacrificed their pre-war positions in order to undertake war work in the present war.

Mr. Butler

Yes, Sir, but my hon. Friend will appreciate that where an age limit is specified by an employer, regard must be paid to his wishes.
