Speaking to the Age UK conference

Yesterday I made a speech to the Age UK conference . If you would like to read a copy of my speech please click here .

Discrimination against older people is a serious problem that must be tackled at the highest levels.

The idea that someone is "past it" when they reach 65, denying people insurance cover simply because of their age, and endemic ageism towards women in the media are all outdated attitudes that need to be consigned to history.
