§ Major GLYN
asked the Postmaster-General how much is at present being paid for glass and china insulators, telegraph and telephone cable, and the telegraph poles in ordinary use?
§ Mr. ILLINGWORTH
During the financial year end d the 31st March last the Post Office paid £76,000 for insulators; approximately £660,000 for telegraph and telephone cables and £37,000 for poles. I regret that I am unable to furnish prices of individual items as contract prices are regarded as confidential.
