Responding to a Treasury inquiry revealing that the rate of 'ill health' retirement among public sector workers is a third higher than the private sector Theresa May MP, shadow secretary of state for education and employment, said:

'This is further evidence of how much the cost of government could be reduced. To do so we need to tackle the underlying problems that are making people retire early.

'Labour's answer - forcing people to stay in the workplace - completely fails to tackle the root cause of the problem.

'If teachers, for example, were not overloaded with so much bureaucracy and constant interference from the government then morale would not be so low and they would not be leaving.

'Moving teachers to lighter duties is not an option. What are lighter duties for a teacher? Does it mean taking Form 1A instead of 5C'
