✦ “I wanted to pass on some in­for­ma­tion to Jean Robin­son re Car­ers Al­lowance stop­ping at 60 (“Rant”, No5385). I too am a full-time carer and claim the al­lowance. I turned 61 last month and like thou­sands of other women will not get my state pen­sion un­til I am 66. The Car­ers Al­lowance only stops when you re­ceive your state pen­sion, and if it was lower than the cur­rent Car­ers Al­lowance the dif­fer­ence would be paid to you. For de­tails, visit the GOV.UK web­site.” Carol

✦ “If your eyesight sud­denly gets worse, it must be dif­fi­cult to know if you should stop driv­ing – but older peo­ple need to re­mem­ber the safety of oth­ers is the most im­por­tant thing. If they re­ally think their driv­ing is not as good as it was, they shouldn’t wait for an ac­ci­dent to con­vince them to stop. A re-test is a good idea as it would de­ter­mine whether they should stop or not.” Daniella
