HC Deb 27 April 1920 vol 128 c1071W

asked the Postmaster-General if he will give facilities for private contractors to put in proper order and repair those telephone and telegraphic services which for many months have been out of service because of weather strains and storms?


The work in question cannot with advantage be placed in the hands of private contractors. If the hon. Member will give me particulars of any cases in which there appears to have been undue delay in carrying out repairs, I will enquire into them.
