HC Deb 06 December 1960 vol 631 c1051
25. Mr. Shepherd

asked the Secretary to the Treasury why some Departments continue the practice of omitting the telephone number from their letterheads; if he is aware of the inconvenience this causes; and if he will make a statement.

Sir E. Boyle

So far as I am aware, Departments include their telephone numbers on their letter paper, except that used by Ministers and very senior officials. If the hon. Member knows of cases where the omission of a telephone number causes inconvenience, I suggest he brings them to the attention of the Ministers concerned.
