§ 102. Mr. Marlowe
asked the Postmaster-General upon what principles his Department determines whether or not a telephone subscriber is called upon to accept a shared line; how far new subscribers can obtain exclusive lines, and 157W upon what grounds; how far existing subscribers with exclusive lines can be required to share; and what steps are taken by his Department in cases where they refuse.
§ Mr. Ness Edwards
Since January, 1948, all new and removing residential subscribers are under obligation to accept shared service if required. In these cases in the event of refusal to share where called upon, the subscriber's agreement is terminated and service withdrawn.
