HC Deb 07 July 1913 vol 55 cc8-9

asked the Postmaster-General whether a telephone exchange has recently been installed at Dunning, Perthshire, also at Kinrossie; if so, how many miles of new line had to be laid down to form the telephone communication and what was the amount of subscription; and how many subscribers are there in each place, respectively?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)

Telephone exchanges are now being installed at Dunning and Kinrossie. In the case of Dunning the necessary junction line will be six and three-quarter miles, long and in the case of Kinrossie five and a half miles long. There will be four subscribers at Dunning, one of whom has agreed to make a special payment. I cannot at the moment give the exact amounts. At Kinrossie there will be three subscribers renting five lines whose subscriptions amount to £39 a year, including a special payment of £5 by one subscriber. At Kinrossie a guarantee of £22 a year in respect of the call office and junction line has also been obtained.
