HC Deb 06 July 1882 vol 271 c1607

asked the Postmaster General, Whether he will consider the expediency of granting licenses to more than one Telephone Company, in order that the public may benefit by competition as well as by recent and future advances in science?


AS I have already stated, Sir, the subject to which the hon. Member refers has been for some time under my consideration, and I can only repeat that there shall be no unnecessary delay in arriving at a decision on it.
