HC Deb 18 June 1956 vol 554 cc69-70W
Mr. Ness Edwards

asked the Postmaster-General if he has considered the application of the National League of the Blind for exemption from the recent increase in telephone charges for registered blind telephone subscribers; and with what result.

Dr. Hill

Several hon. Members have sent me copies of a letter they have received from the Edinburgh Branch of the League. I regret that for the reason given in my reply of 21st December last to the hon. Member for Leyton (Mr. Sorensen), I could not justify exemption from the standard charges for telephone service.
