§ Mr. de Freitas
asked the Assistant Postmaster-General if, in view of the increased telephone charges, accounts could be rendered quarterly; or whether more time could be given for their settlement.
§ Mr. Gammans
A change to quarterly accounts would require a large increase in staff which could not be justified now. My noble Friend sees no sufficient reason for allowing more time for payment of these accounts, and believes that the present procedure commends itself to the telephone subscribers generally.
