§ 40. Major Sir CLIVE MORRISON-BELL
asked the Postmaster-General how many new land lines have been laid through the West Country in the last year to carry increasing overseas telegraphic business from Penzance to London?
§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Vernon Hartshorn)
No new land lines have been constructed for the purpose in question. The existing plant is sufficient to meet the present needs of the overseas services via Penzance.
