HC Deb 01 March 1994 vol 238 c684W
Mr. Boyes

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement about those aims and objectives of the European year of older people which have been taken forward beyond the end of 1993.

Mr. Bowis

We are continuing to pursue policies designed to promote the health and well-being of older people and to encourage their full participation in society. This is in line with the aims and objectives of the year.

An evaluation exercise has recently commenced, which will help to identify the key achievements of the year and its implications for future work.
