HC Deb 23 December 1976 vol 923 cc298-9W
Mr. Channon

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if, in the light of the fact that several hundred ex-employees of the Atomic Energy Authority were offered the once and for all option to retire at 60 years or to retain the right to work until 65 years of age and that many of them based their decision on the rules pertaining at that time to unemployment benefit, he will now allow all these ex-employees the right to reconsider their decision on their retirement date, in view of the Government's proposals to change the rules relating to unemployment benefit.

Mr Eadie

This is a matter for the internal management of the AEA. I am asking the Chairman to write to the hon. Member about it.
