HC Deb 25 April 1939 vol 346 c973W
Mr. Bull

asked the Postmaster-General what steps are taken by his Department to limit the profits made by proprietors of large blocks of flats on the operation of telephones by tenants in such flats; whether he is aware that in the case of many such blocks of flats the reductions in telephone charges made during recent years have not in fact been passed on to the tenants; and whether he will take steps to ensure that this is done?

Major Tryon

The question of charges made by owners of blocks of flats to their tenants for telephone service has been examined from time to time and the conclusion reached that, in general, they were not unreasonable in relation to the services performed. If, however, my hon. Friend has any special case in mind and will furnish me with particulars, I shall be glad to investigate it.
