    In Dormers Wells Infant School v Gill, the EAT holds that a representation made to an employee that he would remain in employment until his partner retired, and/or the fact that other employees worked beyond the age of 65, was not sufficient to found an employment tribunal's jurisdiction to hear his complaint of unfair dismissal.
