HC Deb 24 September 1931 vol 256 c1819
84. Mr. ATTLEE

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is continuing to utilise the services of the advisory committee on telephone publicity established by the late Government; whether this committee has met since he has been appointed; and whether he proposes to make any change in the policy previously announced in the matter of telephone development?


The advisory committee on telephone publicity has already held a meeting under my chairmanship and a further meeting is to be held shortly. I am in cordial agreement with the policy of taking active steps to promote telephone development, but I must, of course, in the present financial circumstances, reserve decision on specific proposals until I have had a fuller opportunity of reviewing them.
