HC Deb 19 December 1928 vol 223 cc3012-3
59. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Postmaster-General if he has received a communication from the Federation of British Wholesale Fish Merchants' Associations drawing attention by the hardship on individual traders caused by the heavy deposit required for trunk calls, which locks up a good deal of their capital which might otherwise be profitably employed in the maintenance and expansion of business, and requesting him to consider favourably the extension of night trunk-call rates from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. in order to meet the requirements of the fish trade; and whether he will favourably consider these two requests?


I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to my reply of yesterday to my hon. Friend the Member for Grimsby (Mr. Womersley).
