HC Deb 04 December 1947 vol 445 c108W
Mr. Byers

asked the Postmaster-General how many temporary postmen over the age of 50 and under the age of 60 have been dismissed from the Post Office within the last year.

Mr. Wilfred Paling

I regret that the information is not available centrally and could not be collected without an incommensurate amount of work. I may mention that since August, no efficient temporary postmen have been dismissed solely to make way for new recruits to the establishment.
