§ Mr. CLYDE
asked the Postmaster-General whether the age-limit of forty-five is found in practice to debar a large number of men, otherwise capable, from getting temporary employment in the Post Office; and, if so, whether he will consider the propriety of extending the age-limit for temporary employment?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
If, as I assume, the hon. Member is referring to Christmas work, I would refer him to my answer to the hon. Member for the Enfield Division on the 21st instant. I am not aware that the age limit of forty-five debars any large number of capable men from the temporary employment referred to.
