HC Deb 05 February 1941 vol 368 c925
29. Sir F. Sanderson

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will consider the granting of a rebate on telephone charges where a line is temporarily out of use due to enemy action?

The Assistant Postmaster - General (Captain Waterhouse)

I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Gillingham (Sir R. Gower) on 7th November. The concession applies to every subscriber whose line is temporarily out of use owing to enemy action.

Sir F. Sanderson

Does not my hon. and gallant Friend consider that where there is unavoidable but prolonged delay, subscribers should be entitled to some repayment?

Captain Waterhouse

Yes, Sir. All subscribers who suffer any delay of this sort get the full concession. There is no question about it.
