§ Dr. Winstanley
asked the Attorney-General what is the average age of the members of the Iron and Steel Arbitration Tribunal; what are the ages of the youngest and the oldest members of the tribunal, respectively; and what provision exists for the removal of members from the tribunal on the grounds of age or incapacity.
The average age of the members of the Iron and Steel Arbitration Tribunal is 59. The youngest is 56 and the oldest 62. Under paragraph 43(4)(b) of Schedule 4 to the Iron and Steel Act, 1967 the office of a member may be declared by the appointing authority to be vacant on the ground that the member is unfit to continue in his office.
