HC Deb 22 May 1905 vol 146 c946
MR. McCRAE (Edinburgh, E.)

To ask the Postmaster-General whether he can state the number of officials in the Edinburgh telegraph staff who have reached the age for retirement laid down in the Civil Service regulations.

(Answered by Lord Stanley.) Under the Order in Council of 15th August, 1890, retirement is compulsory for every officer on attaining sixty-five years of age. No officer on the telegraph staff at Edinburgh has reached that age.
