HC Deb 10 November 1943 vol 393 cc1149-50
74. Colonel Greenwell

asked the Postmaster-General whether operators on trunk telephone circuits are instructed to see that audible conversation is possible between a call-box and a subscriber before demanding the surrender of the call-box fee; and whether there is any means of identifying an operator who puts through a call on which conversation is not possible?

The Postmaster-General (Captain Crookshank)

The answer to both parts of the Question is "Yes, Sir."
