HC Deb 08 April 1930 vol 237 c1994W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will make a statement as to the results of the publicity campaign of the Telephone Development Association; and whether he will cause the Post Office to engage in more extensive publicity activities with a view to popularising the telephone service?


It is impossible to separate the results of Telephone Development Association publicity from those of other causes promoting telephone development. The Post Office relies mainly on personal canvassing, supplemented by the distribution of literature, for the purpose of popularising the telephone, and these methods are considered to be the most fruitful and are continually being developed.
