§ Mr. John Hall
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what progress has been made since 1952 with the resumption of the payment by all Government Departments for telephone and telegraph services.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
Arrangements have been made to extend cash accounting to all Exchequer Government Departments as from the beginning of the next financial year. I am taking the opportunity of asking all Departments to continue to observe the utmost economy in making demands on these services.
