HC Deb 26 March 2004 vol 419 c1082W
Mr. Streeter

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when his Department intends to remove its compulsory retirement age of 60. [162902]

Mr. Caplin

[holding answer 22 March 2004]The Department is now reviewing its retirement age policy for all MOD Civil Servants below the Senior Civil Service. The review will also consider when the Department should implement any changes resulting from that review.

The Department's current retirement age of 60 does not apply to all grades; some have a retirement age of 65 and others somewhere between 60 and 65.
