HC Deb 27 March 1928 vol 215 cc982-3
42. Mr. DAY

asked the Postmaster-General the amount of deposits held to the last convenient date by the Post Office Telephone Service for and on behalf of telephone subscribers in England and Wales?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Sir William Mitchell-Thomson)

The amount at 31st December, 1927, was, approximately, £2,146,000.

Colonel DAY

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether that amount includes deposits for telephones which have since been discontinued and which the telephone subscribers have not reclaimed?


I could not say that without notice. I think the amount would be very small.
