§ 109. Mr. Boardman
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the growing practice in areas where unemployment exists of employers, when advertising vacancies, stipulating that those over 35 need not apply; and if he will take steps to prevent this.
§ Mr. Isaacs
I am not aware that the practice is growing. In some cases it may be appropriate to impose an age limit, particularly when considering new entrants to an industry, but, in general, I agree that it would be undesirable. It my hon. Friend has any particular cases in mind perhaps he would let me know.
