Volume 464: debated on Friday 19 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many and what percentage of employees in (a) his Department and (b) each (i) executive agency and (ii) non-departmental public body funded by his Department are above state retirement age. (158952)

Using the current state retirement age of 65 for men and 60 for women, in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) there are nine (1.76 per cent.) employees above state retirement age. The Royal Parks Agency has one (1 per cent.) employee above state retirement age. DCMS does not hold centrally the information you have requested for the non-departmental public bodies funded by the department and this could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
