HC Deb 08 November 1939 vol 353 c241W
Mr. Ridley

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will state between what hours the radio-telephone service from London to Copenhagen is available for the transmission of journalists' despatches; whether any extension is contemplated in order to improve the existing facilities; and whether there will be a suitable adjustment of the hours when summer-time ends?

Major Tryon

The hours of working of this service have to be arranged by agreement with the Danish telephone authorities. They have recently been extended and are at present from 8.0 to 11.30 a.m., from 5.45 to 9.0 p.m. and from 10.0 to 11.30 p.m. These hours can be slightly extended on any occasion when the needs of the traffic require. The hours of service will be adjusted when summer-time ends.
