asked the Secretary of State for Employment (1) whether literature in connection with the Professional and Executive Register makes clear that there is an upper age limit for acceptance on to it;(2) why an upper age limit is imposed for acceptance on to the Professional and Executive Register;(3) what is the lower and upper age limit imposed for consideration of acceptance on to the Professional and Executive Register.

I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that no reference is made to any upper age limit in publicity material issued by the Professional and Executive Recruitment service since neither an upper nor a lower age limit is imposed. Each application is considered individually with age in some cases being one of the many factors taken into account. The overriding aim throughout is to register the individual with that part of the public employment service most likely to be able to help him or her.
