HC Deb 26 July 1950 vol 478 c83W
152. Mr. Frederic Harris

asked the Postmaster-General what is the number of employees over the age of 70 in the service of his Department.

Mr. Ness Edwards

Figures are not available of Post Office employees over the age of 70, and it would involve a disproportionate amount of work to collect them. Regard is had to the Government policy of retaining elderly men if fit and efficient.
