House of Lords: Retirement Age

Volume 704: debated on Wednesday 8 October 2008

asked the Chairman of Committees:

What is the policy of the House of Lords regarding the retirement age of the staff of the House. [HL5378]

The retirement age for House of Lords staff is currently 65, except where a short-term extension is agreed on grounds of business need. This policy will be reviewed within the next six months in light of the recent decision by the Civil Service to abolish the retirement age for junior grades and to review the retirement age for senior grades.
