HC Deb 05 August 1919 vol 119 c210W

asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that the telephone charge is 7d. between the Harrow Post Office and Harrow Weald, a distance of about 2 miles; and for how long this charge is likely to remain?


The charge of 7d. for a call from the call office at Harrow Post Office, in the London telephone district, to Harrow Weald, which is outside that district, is made up of the minimum trunk fee of 4d. and the call office fee of 3d. It is probable that the present system of charging by telephone areas will be materially altered in connection with the proposed revision of telephone tariffs.
