Motion text

That this House welcomes Help the Aged's report, Age Discrimination in Public Policy; expresses concern that the report finds over half the population believes this country treats older people as if they are on the scrap-heap; notes that the report provides further evidence of the level of age discrimination in society and the use of age as an arbitrary way of rationing resources and barring access to services; and calls on the Government to introduce comprehensive legislation to tackle age discrimination at the earliest possible opportunity.
