§ Mr. KIRKWOOD
asked the Postmaster-General whether the proposal for granting reduced telephonic rates to farmers has been carried into effect; and, if so, whether market gardeners receive the same benefit?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
The special rate for rural party lines to which the hon. Member refers has been in force for some time. The benefit of the arrangement is open to all residents in rural districts including market gardeners, and is not limited to farmers.
