HC Deb 20 November 1946 vol 430 cc105-6W
Major Beamish

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether he has studied the radio-telephone system now being operated by the New York Telephone Company as part of the Bell system; and whether he has any similar plans to announce for this country.

Mr. Burke

I am aware of some interesting radio-telephone developments in the U.S.A., including one for telephone calls from moving vehicles. These developments are being closely watched by the Post Office engineers and the possibility of their introduction in this country will be examined when the position in regard to providing basic telephone services is easier.
