Mr. T. THOMSON
asked the Postmaster General if he is aware that considerable dissatisfaction exists amongst large business firms and other users of the telephone at the refusal of his officials to supply particulars of the trunk calls which are charged; and will he give instructions for this information to be supplied in future, as was previously the custom?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS:
To supply all telephone subscribers with full particulars of each trunk call would involve 2397W considerable delay and expense. Any subscriber will be furnished with fuller information than that ordinarily given in the accounts on payment of a fee proportionate to the clerical work involved.
