Vol. 242 No. 1

Longer Healthy Living Bill 2015: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to ensure that all those who are employees of the Department of Health, and all those who are employed by bodies directly funded by the Department of Health, may, if they wish, postpone their retirement where they would otherwise have been forced to retire at a particular age that is stipulated in their employment contract, subject to their continuing capacity to fulfil the duties of their employment in a safe fashion.

I second the motion.

Is the motion agreed to? Agreed. When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

In a break with tradition, next Wednesday.

Is that agreed? Agreed.
