HC Deb 28 May 1952 vol 501 cc158-9W
56. Mr. Woodburn

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether he is aware of the value of maintaining family and other personal ties between the mother country and the Commonwealth, and especially the close connection of Scotland with Canada and the United States of America; and what investigations are taking place into the practicability of developing visual telephony as an aid to periodic reunions of separated friends.

Mr. Gammans

No investigations, directed specifically to enabling people in this country to see as well as to speak to their friends in the Commonwealth, are taking place in the Post Office.
