Lords debate assistance for older people

26 March 2010

During a debate on 25 March, Members of the House of Lords discussed means of assisting older people and meeting future challenges.

In a country where the average life expectancy is increasing, Members debated various aspects of an ageing population including housing, health and social care, equality, retirement and pensions.

In the House of Lords Members may table questions for debate, usually up to two hours and a half, on a specific issue or matter of concern. A minister responds on behalf of the Government.
