HC Deb 24 May 1927 vol 206 c1857W
Colonel DAY

asked the Postmaster-General the average delay in telephone calls passing between Paris and London between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. each day; and if he is aware of any special reason for the delay so caused?


An average of about one hour during the last 12 months; the delay is largely due to difficulties of maintenance of overhead plant on the Continent.
