§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Attlee)
There is no fixed retiring age for Post Office servants; but retirement usually takes place between the ages of 60 and 62, according to circumstances. A return is now being obtained of established officers in the Post Office over the age of 60; and this information will be sent to the hon. Member as soon as it is available.
§ Mr. MACQUISTEN
Will the hon. Gentleman take into consideration the fact that a postman's is a healthy life, and that many postmen of 60 are in effect younger than men of 50 who have to work indoors?
