§ Major WARING
asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the fact that the charges in respect of the public call-office at Abbey St. Bathans are estimated at £20, and that the sum required as guarantee is to make good the difference between the estimated receipts from local fees plus half the trunk fees and the office charges, he can see his way to reduce the amount of the guarantee asked for in this case, namely, the full amount of £20?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS:
I regret that I am not in a position to reduce the guarantee required. The sum which would be collected from the guarantors each year would not be £20, but the difference between £20 and the receipts from local fees plus half the trunk fees.
