§ 63. Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the normal retiring age for United States-based British consular staff.
§ Mr. Kershaw
If the question is referring to the locally engaged staff serving in British Consular Offices in the United States the normal retiring age is 65 irrespective of nationality. In the case of honorary consular officers there is no fixed age for retirement but the efficiency and suitability of those concerned are kept under regular review.
