§ 29. Mr. Russell
asked the Postmaster-General what approaches were made by his predecessor to Commonwealth Governments with a view to introducing more cheap night rate telephone calls between Great Britain and other Commonwealth countries, as is done in the service with Canada.
§ Miss Pike
None, Sir. It was necessary to defer such an approach pending a more general review of Commonwealth telephone rates in connection with the decision to provide a Pacific telephone cable. We are, however, about to begin consultations with other Commonwealth countries on the possibility of a cheap rate.
