How fast is life expectancy increasing in the UK (and elsewhere)?

The Minister for Health (UK, but main responsibility for England) recently said that "life expectancy is rising at a rate of two years per decade". If this were so, I could expect to live 5 years longer than my parents and 10 years longer than my grandparents. I don't believe this is the case. Does anyone know where I can find reliable stats on this?
