AnnotationThe existence of the `old age bulge' was seen as a temporary phenomenon and not as an ever-increasing burden in this discussion document. It covers population trends, the income and expenditure of older people, accommodation problems (housing and care), and employment versus retirement for older people. The pamphlet concludes with a list of recommendations, including the suggestion that the application of rigid retirement ages is out of data. (RH).
