asked the Minister of National Insurance whether she will give her calculation of the expectation of life of a man at 60, 65 and 70 and a woman at 60 and 65.

I have been asked to reply. The approximate expectations of life in England and Wales, as calculated by the Registrar-General on the basis of mortality in 1949, are: 15 years for men aged 60; 12 years for men aged 65; 9 years for men aged 70; 18 years for women aged 60; 14 years for women aged 65.
