HC Deb 24 June 1913 vol 54 c970

asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the case of a lady who endeavoured to ring up 657 Western in order to give a call for a doctor, and that, after argument with the operator, the number was given but was cut off from communication before a reply could be received; and whether, in view of the circumstances surrounding the case, he will cause an immediate inquiry to be made?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)

My attention has been drawn to this case, but it was only yesterday morning that the Post Office succeeded in its efforts to establish the identity of the telephone subscriber who made the call in question and whose name was not published. Investigations are being made into the facts.
