§ 59. Mr. W. THORNE
asked the Postmaster-General whether the £1 10s. deposit required from telephone sub- 1077 scribers has now been reduced to £1; and, if so, whether it is his intention to refund the 10s. of those subscribers who have already deposited £1 10s.?
§ The ASSISTANT POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Viscount Wolmer)
The minimum telephone deposit has been reduced to £1, and those subscribers who have deposited £1 10s. will be credited with 10s. through the accounts to be rendered next month, except in cases where the charge for the quarter's calls appreciably exceeds £1 10s.
