§ Mr. Allighan
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the fact that under the new National Insurance Act proposals for the retirement pension age is 65 years, he will consider continuing to that age all employment of temporary civil servants instead of making their retirement compulsory at 6o years of age.
§ Mr. Dalton
No, Sir. There is no upper age-limit to the employment of temporary civil servants. Departments continue to 65W employ staff beyond age 60 in all cases where they are willing to remain and are fully fit and efficient in their grade and where there is real need to retain their services.
