    Labour are promising to appoint the first independent commissioner for older people.

    In Labour’s older people’s manifesto, Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Rachel Reeves will promise to ensure the voice of older people is heard in government, reports the Yorkshire Post.

    Labour plans to place Miriam O’Reilly as an independent adviser.

    Ms O’Reilly said: “Older people have a vital role to play in our society, yet I constantly hear from older people that they are frightened of the future and feeling vulnerable in a society which does not see their worth. After a lifetime of contributing to our country, they feel growing older has made them invisible. That’s why I would be delighted to take on this important role in a future Labour Government. Our older generation needs to be championed because otherwise we are in danger of missing out on a vast resource of talent, knowledge and experience.”
