HC Deb 04 March 1997 vol 291 c559W
Mr. Robert Ainsworth

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what steps she is taking to reduce discrimination against potential employees on the grounds of age. [16084]

Mrs. Gillan

The Government are fully aware of the problem of age discrimination against older employees. That is why this Department promotes the Government's campaign for older workers which persuades employers to recruit, train, and retain them on merit, disregarding age.
