HC Deb 06 August 1912 vol 41 cc2963-4W
Captain CRAIG

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the fact that his Department has consented to establish a public telephone call office at Rostrevor, he will grant similar facilities to Down-patrick, the capital town of county Down, which is in every way more important from a commercial and central point of view than the village of Rostrevor?


I am having inquiry made into the question of providing telephone facilities at Downpatrick.


asked the Postmaster-General if his attention has been called to the constant complaints made by subscribers to the telephone in the Metropolitan area of overcharges; and if he will consider the desirability of having records of the number of calls of each subscriber taken each week, so that some opportunity may be given to subscribers of checking the demands of the Post Office?


I beg to refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave yesterday to a similar question asked by the Noble Lord the Member for the Newton Division of Lancashire.
