HC Deb 17 June 1907 vol 176 cc165-6

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General in view of the difficulty experienced in communicating by telephone with the India Office, will arrangements be made for the telephone numbers of the private secretaries of the various Government Offices to be inserted in the London Telephone Directory.


It is the practice of the Post Office to ask the Government Departments concerned whether they wish the exchange numbers of their telephone lines to be published in the Telephone Directory. A good many numbers are so published, but I could not interfere with the discretion of the heads of the various Departments in the matter.
