Lords support EFA campaign

The Employers Forum on Age (EFA) campaign to abolish the default retirement age has received strong support from the House of Lords, as it agreed with claims that it discriminates against older workers.

Lord Giddens said: "Anyone who studies pensions and has read the Turner report knows we need a higher proportion of older people in the labour force. They also know the UK is not doing as well as some other countries, which have liberalised their age of retirement in a much more radical way than the UK has done."
