§ Mr. Janner
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment when she expects to complete the setting up of the special advisory group on older workers; what are its terms of reference; and when it will start and complete its work.
§ Mr. McLoughlin
We have received an encouraging number of expressions of interest about the advisory group on older workers, and will soon be in a position to issue invitations for membership. The group will assist in encouraging, identifying and disseminating good employer practice with regard to older workers. It will start work later this year, and progress will be reviewed after three years.
