HC Deb 23 January 1962 vol 652 c1W
Sir B. Janner

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that there are complaints in Leicester that some of the subscriber trunk dialling meters there are faulty, with resultant excessive charges to users; what steps he is taking to have meters carefully and periodically checked; and whether he will make a refund to those telephone users who have been overcharged.

Mr. Bevins

My information is that there have been very few complaints about excessive charges due to faulty meters in Leicester. The meters—which are the same for local and trunk calls dialled by subscribers—are very reliable and are tested regularly. I should be very willing to investigate any complaints the hon. Gentleman may care to put to me, and to make a refund if a subscriber has been overcharged.
