Today I am publishing our analysis of responses to the "Coming of Age" consultation that ended on 17 October 2005. The consultation sought views on the draft Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006. Our analysis is available on the DTI website at: There were 392 responses, of which 248 were non-confidential. Copies of those responses are also available on the DTI website.

We have taken into account the responses, and continuing informal consultation with key stakeholders, when finalising the regulations, which I have laid before the House. Subject to the approval of both Houses the regulations will come into force on 1 October.

I have arranged for copies of the report to be placed in the Libraries of the House.
