§ 30. Major NEVEN-SPENCE
asked the Postmaster-General what progress has been made in the direction of providing telephonic communication between Shetland and the mainland and between the various islands and the mainland of Shetland and Orkney, respectively?
§ Major TRYON
The proposals for the provision of trunk telephone service between Shetland and the mainland of Great Britain and between the various islands and the mainland of Shetland and Orkney involve a large amount of detailed investigation. The matter is being actively pursued and this winter further experiments are to be made on the spot in order to determine the suitability at all times of the year of ultra-short-wave wireless telephony for the purpose of extending telephone service to these islands.
