§ 29. Mr. CECIL WILSON
asked the Postmaster-General the income and expenditure in the case of each of the various classes of telegrams?
§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Ormsby-Gore)
As the answer contains a number of figures I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate the particulars in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Following are the particulars:
§ The estimated allocation of income and expenditure as between the various classes of telegram for the year 1929–30 was as following:
|Ordinary Inland Telegrams||2,900,000||3,878,000|
|Inland Press Telegrams||94,000||301,000|
|Anglo-Irish Free State Telegrams||66,000||103,000|
|Wireless (including Ship and Shore Services)||237,000||306,000|
§ An analysis of the figures for the year 1930–31 is not yet available.
§ The figures for expenditure are arrived at by charging against each class of message its proportionate share of the total expenditure on the telegraph services as a whole.
