- 2002 Retired Members' Conference
- 27 June 2002
This Conference notes that the Government has taken a piecemeal approach to the enactment of anti-discriminatory law in the United Kingdom. In particular, the Government does not apparently intend to address the question of age discrimination in the provision of goods and services set out in a European Directive until 2006 at the earliest.
The end of age discrimination in this respect should mean, for example, that the present practice of charging additional premiums for older people on travel insurance could be challenged.
Therefore Conference requests the National Retired Members’ Committee to take up this matter with the National Executive Council in order that age discrimination in the provision of goods and services is brought to an end as speedily as possible.
