asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the fact that no telephone repairs are carried out between 1 p.m. on Saturday and Monday morning, except in the case of those telephones belonging to doctors, this privilege can be extended to the general public, seeing that no money is refunded in respect of the period in which their telephones are out of working order?
§ Mr. WHITE
The present arrangements for fault repair during week-ends apply not only to the circuits of doctors, but also to fire alarm, police, hospital and other circuits where the immediate restoration of communication is in the general public interest. My right hon. Friend is considering whether it is possible to extend their scope.
