Media coverage of the retirement age for magistrates

Following the motion passed at the MA's AGM in October supporting an increase in the retirement age for magistrates, the MA has been promoting this issue in the media.

An article in The Times on 9 January – available here – set out the reasons why the retirement age needs to be reconsidered and quotes our National Chair John Bache extensively. The issue was subsequently also covered in the New Statesman and the Yorkshire Post, in articles by the former Pensions Minister and government-appointed Business Champion for Older Workers Ros Altmann.
