HC Deb 20 November 1950 vol 481 c17W
Mr. P. Roberts

asked the Postmaster-General what telephone facilities were placed at the disposal of the World Peace Congress in the Sheffield City Hall; how many man-hours were used in providing these facilities; and what was the cost.

Mr. Ness Edwards

Thirty-seven temporary exchange lines with switchboards, etc., were provided for the use of the organisers and members of the Congress and of the Press. The number of man-hours required to provide and remove the apparatus is estimated at 400, and the direct cost at £60.
