HC Deb 13 July 1960 vol 626 c1386
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.
