HC Deb 21 June 1897 vol 50 c431
MR. A. D. PROVAND (Glasgow, Blackfriars)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, how much money has been voted in connection with the telephone service, beginning with sums paid when the trunk lines were taken over by the Post Office?
