Age concern

Cabinet minister Roger Freeman, 53, says MPs should retire at 60, although his boss, Deputy Prime Minister Michael Heseltine, is 62.

His proposal, which would cut a swathe through Tory ranks in the Commons, is a "personal view" given in a pre-recorded People's Parliament to be shown on Channel 4 on Saturday. He says: "I think that frankly by the time you reach 60 it's probably time to retire."
