§ Mr. Bercow
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what his Department's policy is towards age discrimination. 
§ Ruth Kelly
The Treasury has taken steps to integrate age into its equal opportunity policies and the Department has a commitment that there should be no unfair discrimination on the basis of age. Action on diversity has and will continue to tackle any negative attitudes towards older staff particularly through the training and development of managers and through the monitoring of recruitment, selection and appraisal statistics.
