HC Deb 10 July 1940 vol 362 c1171W
Sir J. Mellor

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will take steps to bring to the notice of subscribers their right under the Post Office and Telegraph Act, 1940, to terminate their telephone contracts by notice in writing within one month after the commencement of the Act?

Captain Waterhouse

I regret that under present war conditions I cannot agree to take any special steps on the lines suggested by my hon. Friend; these would involve individual notification to some 400,000 subscribers. The publicity which my hon. Friend's Question and this answer will receive will possibly serve the purpose he has in mind.
