HC Deb 02 July 1958 vol 590 c89W
65. Mr. Eric Fletcher

asked the Postmaster-General what steps he is taking to ensure that cables sent to Post Office cables and wireless services over the telex system for transmission abroad are in fact delivered.

Mr. K. Thompson

The progress of each overseas telegram handed in by telex is continuously checked until its receipt is acknowledged by the overseas telegraph office. The system of checks is kept under regular review to try to eliminate completely the possibilitiy of failures.
