HC Deb 20 May 1909 vol 5 cc715-6W

asked the Postmaster-General if he will state the number of subscribers on the Post Office telephone system for the financial years ending in 1906, 1907, 1908, and 1909; the number of complaints received from subscribers concerning overcharges for calls during those years; and in how many cases of complaint against overcharges have allowances or rebates been made on accounts for calls in those years?


The statistics for which my hon. Friend asks are available for the Post Office system in London. It would be difficult to give them in a verbal reply, and I am, therefore, sending them to him. Similar statistics are not available for the Post Office telephone system in the provinces.
