HC Deb 30 June 1954 vol 529 c91W
16. Mr. Drayson

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General what consideration has been given to the question of providing postmen in country districts with motor-assisted bicycles.

Mr. Gammans

We tried autocycles out over a period of two years, but found that they were not robust enough to stand up to our requirements. The same would, of course, apply to motor-assisted pedal cycles.
