HC Deb 11 December 1946 vol 431 c241W
115. Colonel Crosthwaite-Eyre

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General on what basis a condition of employment as a postman is to have a height of five feet four inches.

Mr. Burke

Sorting letters forms part of a Postman's normal duties; and men who are less than five feet four inches in height would generally experience difficulty in reaching the upper parts of the sorting frames.
