Solihull MBC social services assistant director John Barker is to urge the council to look at the age of people recruited by the department with a view to recruiting younger employees, reports the Birmingham Post (p4).

A social services sub-committee study shows that absenteeism within the department has risen since 1994.

Mr Barker told the paper: 'It is the case that our society and this council tend to expect to see mature ladies in caring roles.

'But older staff are more inclined to have periods of longer absence.

'I will be inviting the sub-committee to consider whether they want to broaden the recruitment,' he said.
