Equality: Age Discriminiation

Volume 685: debated on Monday 9 October 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will defer the implementation of the age discrimination regulations pending further representations from the Confederation of British Industry and other parties.[HL7292]

The Employment Equality (Age) Regulations come into force on 1 October 2006 as planned. However, in response to feedback from CBI and others, amending regulations laid on 8 September mean that the pension provisions in the age regulations will not now come into force until 1 December, to give more time for schemes to adjust and for consideration of any further representations.
