HC Deb 26 February 1954 vol 524 c61W
Mr. Iremonger

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General what sum is issued to postmen on the beginning of their rounds; of what coins this sum is composed; how long ago the sum in question was decided upon; and whether he is satisfied that it is adequate for the many small doorstep transactions requiring the giving of change for which the postman is responsible.

Mr. Gammans

It has never been the practice to issue a sum of money to postmen at the beginning of their rounds for giving change and, so far as I am aware, this has not hitherto given rise to difficulty, but if my hon. Friend will let me have details of any case he has in mind, I will gladly look into it.
