§ Mr. Holland
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware of the difficulty that the organisers of hospital football commentaries will have in meeting the recently announced increases in Post Office charges; and whether he will waive the increases in these cases.
§ Mr. Bevins
I recognise how much these commentaries are valued by hospital patients, and I have now found it possible to make some changes in the method of applying the tariff. The effect26W of these changes will be to moderate the increases substantially both in the case of hospital commentary circuits and other similar networks. Telephone managers will presently be getting in touch with the renters of these networks to work out with them the cheapest way of providing the facilities they need.
