Sir W. MITCHELL-THONISON
The value and single-wire length of the main trunk telephone cables laid underground in the year 1927 were, respectively, £349,000 and 41,000 miles. The corresponding figures for 1921 were £1,347,000 and 154,500 miles.
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
No; as I told the hon. Member the other day, we are extending the underground lines. He will realise, of course, that the figures for 1921 included several years of Wartime arrears.
