HC Deb 27 June 1957 vol 572 c60W
Captain Kerby

asked the Postmaster-General if, in the interests of the ordinary telephone subscriber, he will instruct the telephone service to revert to the practice of rendering their accounts quarterly instead of six-monthly.

Mr. Marples

A change to quarterly accounting would require a large increase in staff and additional expenditure estimated at about £1 million, and could not be undertaken at present.
