HC Deb 12 March 1947 vol 434 c195W
80. Mr. M. MacMillan

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General what progress is being made towards the provision of a public telephone service for the island of Scarp.

Mr. Burke

To provide a public telephone service, it will be necessary to lay a submarine cable across the Sound of Scarp. The route has not yet been fully surveyed, but subject to no unforeseen difficulties arising it is hoped to under take the work this year.
