Government lies on mandatory retiring age

In response to the Equality and Human Rights Commission's call for scrapping the mandatory retirement age in the UK, a government spokesperson on the Today programme said that there was no support for this move, I am led to believe.

On the contrary, both Lynne Featherstone in the Commons and Lord Lester in the other place have repeatedly tried to amend the Equality Bill to do this.
