§ 33. Mr. CECIL WILSON
asked the Postmaster-General whether, as in the 358 year 1929–30 the income from Press telegrams fell short of the expenditure by £207,000, any steps are to be taken to reduce this loss in future?
§ Mr. WHITE
Extensive changes in methods and equipment now in progress will, I hope, assist in a reduction of the general loss on the telegraph service, including that on Press telegrams. If the hon. Member has in mind the question of an increase of the Press telegraph tariff, no proposals in this direction are under consideration at the moment. Any such change would require legislation.
