§ 74. Mr. H. Brooke
asked the Assistant Postmaster-General on what grounds it is proposed to make telephone subscribers in London pay a rental £2 a year more than in the rest of the country.
§ Mr. Gammans
The answer is that a subscriber in London gets more for his money in respect of local calls than in the rest of the country. The distance he can 'phone, and the number of subscribers he can call for 1½d., is much greater than elsewhere.
