§ Colonel LANE FOX
The information is as follows:
number of telephone users in Great Britain compares most unfavourably with that of the United States of America, Sweden, and other countries; and whether he will consider the desirability of taking such steps as will render it possible for the telephone to be more extensively used in this country?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
I am aware of the position, and can assure my hon. Friend that the development of the telephone service is receiving my close personal attention. Telephones are at present being installed at the rate of over 19,000 a month.
